Event Description
A Little Bit of Death VII




A Little Bit of Death is an annual spell that uses the art of community storytelling as medicine while centering the narratives of the BIPOC community and the queer community. It’s about letting go, of gathering up pain, asking it hard questions, and turning them into lessons so that we can release the rest. It’s about having a skilled eye to see what parts of our lives no longer serve us, so that we can bring it “Death” to it and create room to welcome the things that do serve us.

Folks have shared stories of trauma and triumph, fear and failure, loss and laughter. This is where community gathers to listen, to be heard, to be reflected back by the storytellers sharing their hearts on stage. It is a powerful night of healing. Join us.

About the Curator:

Zulynette (she/her) is a queer, Puerto Rican, artist, social worker (MSW), poet, performer, and author who was raised in Hartford, CT. As the creator of the annual storytelling show A Little Bit of Death, she uses her artistry, research background, and social work background as tools for community transformation. Her work explores the themes of identities, our emotional resonance as humans, and death as a metaphor for change. She is the host of the podcast The Creative Alchemist where she shares the knowledge she’s gained as a full-time artist and knowledge shared by interviewing other creatives in the hopes of helping anyone wanting to pursue their artistry as a career. Recognized as the first Hartford Iron Poet champion and a 100 Women of Color honoree, she has chosen to dedicate her life to using the arts as her form of social work. In short, she is the baddest muhfucka you'll ever meet. @iamzulynette, www.zulynette.com
