Invited to participate in the inaugural
Making Today Series, in conversation
and workshop development with creative
writer Jacqueline Kolosov,
Texas Tech University - School of Art,
April 16, 23 & 30, 2021

This series seeks to create a dynamic
space rooted in the school’s commitment
to artistic praxis, which will intentionally
generate collaboration across TTU’s campus.
By learning in and though the
Making Today Series, the TTU arts
community will organically and dynamically
cultivate a space to challenge traditional
ways of knowing, to render different
histories tangible, and to meet and
exchange multiple and contested stories.

Organized by Dr. Rina Kundu Little, Ph.d
& Lesley A. Wolff, Ph.d
