Morning Altars
Healing and Reconciliation Using Nature, Art and Ritual

Virtual Workshop
Saturday, April 10
10 a.m.-1 p.m.

Register Now

OSU-Tulsa will host an interactive virtual workshop with author and artist Day Schildkret in which participants perform a seven-step “Morning Altar” ritual to encourage healing and recovery from trauma, including community and generational trauma.

Participating in the Interactive Workshop

Participants of the event will work with Schildkret to create their own Morning Altar out of leaves, berries, bark, flowers and other elements of nature from their own parks, stoops and backyards. The altars are made from arranging these elements in patterns and reflecting on how recycling objects, colors, textures and shapes from nature and the community can create new forms of beauty and memory.

Personal and Community Healing

“Trauma is often personal – but as we approach the centennial of the Tulsa Race Massacre, there’s a lot of conversation about community and generational trauma as well,” said Nekki Reagan-Neely, assistant vice president for community engagement and student services at OSU-Tulsa. “We hope this event can help people heal from any source of trauma and reconcile with the ongoing impact of the Massacre.”

This workshop is part of OSU-Tulsa’s 100 Points of Truth and Transformation, which offers 100 opportunities for students and the public to connect with the truth of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre and be inspired toward transformative justice.

About Day Schildkret
