Text Collective was a digital residency facilitated by Lauren Prousky structured around bi-monthly meetings for writers and text-based artists of marginalized genders including women, two-spirited people and gender diverse individuals including non-binary and trans people. The goal was to create a supportive space where we discuss our work, flesh out ideas, share resources and talk/commiserate/celebrate with peers.
