Generations Project Writing Workshop & Sharing Session

To mark our 35th anniversary, and in honor of SpeakOut, we are honored to be hosting an event in collaboration with The Generations Project – an organization that facilitates intergenerational queer writing workshops, and bringing LGBTQ+ experiences to life through storytelling (check them out on Instagram)!

At this event, our partners from The Generations Project will facilitate a virtual and intersectional learning program, bringing together LGBTQ+ Dartmouth alums for a creative sharing and discussion group. The Generations Project facilitators will guide us through multiple short prompts, with an emphasis on free self-expression and imagination.

The exercises are designed to be non-intimidating and easy for writers and beginners alike, and to spark various avenues of discussion. It’s sure to be the most interactive virtual event you attend all year!

  • Writing Workshop: Thursday, September 24; 5-7 p.m. ET (Join Facebook Event)
  • Sharing Session: Thursday, October 1; 5-6 p.m. ET

Both events will be followed by Happy Hours (Facebook Event), co-hosted by Chuck Edwards ’86 A&S and Leandra Barrett ’15 – both of whom participated in the SpeakOut project!

Perretti, Jr. Governor Chris Christie nominated her to serve as an Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court and was sworn in on September 1, 2011.

Virtual Mini-Reunion Events

The ongoing pandemic has forced DGALA’s annual on-campus June mini-reunion to be moved online. Happily, two of the mini’s most popular events will still take place (albeit virtually). Registration is required for each event.

First, on Thursday, June 18th, we will be hosting President Phil Hanlon ’77 for a conversation starting at 5 p.m ET, followed by a social hour for DGALA members.

Register for the June 18 meeting with President Hanlon

On Saturday, June 20th, join us for a virtual exhibition discussion with the Hood Museum of Art! Morgan E. Freeman, Native American Art Fellow, and Jami Powell, Associate Curator of Native American Art, will guide DGALA through exhibitions that were installed in the galleries prior to closing and that will be on view when the museum eventually reopens. They will highlight a number of works in the collection by queer Indigenous artists and describe the museum’s ongoing work with Dartmouth faculty and students and the surrounding Upper Valley community.
