During their residency, Kai River Blevins will be working on a chapbook exploring the intersections of gender, sexuality, mental health, and whiteness. Kai uses a mixture of traditional and experimental syntax and forms to manifest the critical perspectives which are often silenced by our society. Their work examines how we produce knowledge, construct/interpret our realities, (re)create and resist privilege and oppression, and negotiate (our) morals through the body. Kai will also be teaching a community workshop engaging gender and sexuality norms through creative writing. Kai often facilitates trainings and workshops around LGBTQ issues and activism at venues ranging from local community and faith centers to nationwide conferences.  Hours: Tue.-Fri., 10 am-5 pm; Sat.-Sun., noon-5 pm. Closed Monday. The Annex Bush Barn Art Center 600 Mission St. SE 503-581-2228
