Join us for a virtual discussion and creative writing exercise led by guest instructor Vicente Yépez. You’ll engage with works of art from the Crystal Bridges collection as we explore the ways that writing and art allow us space to celebrate and express gratitude for the experiences that have pained us.
Vicente Yépez is a writer, educator, and graduate of the University of Arkansas’s Creative Writing MFA. Raised along the Mexico/Texas border, Vicente’s hybrid-genre writing centers on intersectional identity and the issues that affect marginalized communities in the US and Latin America. Vicente is also the founder and host of Fútbol For The People, a bilingual podcast/media channel that discusses the intersection of soccer, ethics, and working-class politics. Since relocating to Arkansas, Vicente has worked to establish relationships with community organizations to empower workers and provide literacy tools that can help them better advocate for themselves and their communities.
