“What’s Your Elephant” highlights “the elephant in the room” as an idiom for truths, problems or risks that are either ignored or unaddressed out of fear, shame or some form of discomfort, but are nonetheless impossible to overlook. Come and participate with artist Niki Lopez in this hands-on creative workshop and explore for yourself the important theme of “What’s Your Elephant?” This workshop promises to be an affirming and safe space for LGBTQ+ folks and their allies. Workshop participants will have the option of exhibiting what they create at the “What’s Your Elephant?” exhibit at Gallery 1310 opening on August 18th in Fort Lauderdale. Stonewall National Museum & Archives is a proud community partner for the 2018 What’s Your Elephant exhibition.
The “What’s Your Elephant?” exhibit at 1310 Gallery will be presented in collaboration with the “Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933 – 1945” exhibit at the Stonewall National Museum – Wilton Manors. The exhibit is part of a larger movement that creates a safe space for people to use the arts to dialogue and bring awareness to the unspoken and includes visual, performing and interactive arts, creative community building, workshops and events.
