Writing Group: Future Ancestors


“How can we, future ancestors, align ourselves with the most resilient practices of emergence as a species?” - adrienne maree brown, Emergent Strategy.

Our bi-monthly generative Writing Group continues as we think about shaping the futures we want to live, led by artist and writer Meital Yaniv.

The session will consist of creative writing exercises and an element of group work! No writing experience necessary, this is an open and inclusive co-creative venture.

Meital Yaniv (b. 1984, Tel-Aviv, Israel) is a Los Angeles based interdisciplinary artist whose practice embodies language, performance, and video. Yaniv’s labor weaves and merges the personal and the political to find the common thread in disparate struggles, connecting ideas, bodies, and forms of resistance. Since 2015, Yaniv has been organizing intimate reading events with the aim of conceiving alternative communities where vulnerability holds us all accountable. Her book, Spectrum for an Untouchable, was published in October 2016. She has performed and exhibited at Hummer Museum, MCASD (Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego), Human Resources, LACA (Los Angeles Contemporary Archive), The Situation Room, Visitor Welcome Center, LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions), PØST, Mana Contemporary, and Wendy’s Subway, among others. She has been published by Los Angeles Review of Books’ Voluble Channel, Nonsensical, Ladyscumbag, Entropy Magazine, Graphite Journal, and notes on looking, with reviews by Huffington Post, LA Weekly, Bitch Media, KCET Artbound, and Fabrik Magazine. Yaniv holds an MFA from California Institute of the Arts and a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.
