Over the last few months, Goats and Soda, NPR's global health and development blog, has been reporting on how women around the world are adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic.
A common theme unites this set of diverse stories: resilience. Despite the new stresses, women are drawing upon inner strength to survive and even thrive. And in many cases, artistic self-expression has been a salve—and a means of connection in a moment of isolation.
This holiday season, NPR invites you to join our first virtual creative workshop with three sessions led by inspiring women involved in this reporting. Everyone is welcome to join.
You can choose your own adventure: make a comic about a woman who inspires you with comic artist Laura Gao. Learn to set up a portrait with award-winning photographer Julia Gunther. Or, learn the art of reporting out a meaningful story with NPR's own senior producer Marisa Peñaloza.
In a time when many of us are separated from loved ones, let's come together virtually to reflect on our experiences and make beautiful things. Come solo or invite the special people in your life to join you for the event.
Space is limited, so please RSVP with the intention to attend!
When you RSVP, let us know which workshop you plan to attend. (But don't worry, you can change your mind the day of the workshop). We'll send you a Zoom link to join. We encourage you to turn your camera on if you're comfortable! And we'll send a list of supplies you might need closer to the date.
We'll see you soon!
If you don't receive a confirmation email upon RSVP, please send as an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
