Speak, Memory

Sunday Nov 14, 2010 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

Ages 8–13

What does a rhombus sound like? Can you smell a symphony? In this workshop, participants will learn about synaesthesia, otherwise known as the mixing of the senses, and explore their relationships to sight, touch, sound, and smell. Students will use their newly developed synaesthetic tool kit to write about their own memories and the sensory recollections that shape them. Writer and curator Sarah Brin is currently writing her master's thesis on artists’ games and the power of play in public space.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.
