n/a, n/a, IN n/a
Noblesville Interdisciplinary Creativity Expo (NICE) project, now in its 7th year, is an annual project is based upon our love of classic literature. Each year, the project offers four books and four standalone passages, one from each book, for discussion, analysis, introspection, and ultimately inspiration for new creative pieces in any medium or genre of the Arts. 2021's book selections are: Sula (1973) by Toni Morrison, The Yellow Wallpaper (1892; short story) by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, A Wrinkle in Time (1962) by Madeleine LEngle, and Tarzan of the Apes (1912) by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Inspired creations can be presented in our presentations event (submission deadline Sept. 23; event date Sept. 30). You do not need to be familiar with the books or passages to participate in NICE!
This workshop looks at Sula, by Toni Morrison, and the standalone passage from it:
we can find problematic content throughout this book: racial issues, sexual issues, violence, etc. They all add to the story; how?
Female friendship: are Nell and Sula a good example of female friendship?
what's happening in this passage? (actions, thoughts, reverie, dialogue, etc)
what emotions do you feel from the passage? (any difference between reading silently or hearing it read aloud)
what personal connections or experiences come to mind?
inspiration for new art creations (all mediums/genres)
