FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C., June 1, 2021 – The Flower Shop Collective is excited to announce Slow Process Summer, a curriculum aimed at gathering and educating artists and non-artists alike to give them the tools they need to embrace the idea of community, think about their creative processes through various theoretical lenses, and create more intentional artistic practices. This past year of quarantining and social distancing has made the importance of collective care extremely evident.
The Flower Shop Collective is committed to bringing the creative community together in a way that is empowering. This summer will be full of in-person and virtual workshops, as well as virtual discussions, highlighting how to incorporate slow processes across various artistic mediums: natural dyeing techniques, poetry, painting, and sculpture. By centering the idea of the slow process, The Flower Shop Collective will show how incorporating archival research, personal histories, and creating handcrafted materials are incredibly rewarding practices. The Slow Process Summer will execute in-person workshops in Brooklyn, New York, and Miami, Florida. The Flower Shop Collective is eager to safely gather and learn as a community.
