Gabby Rivera: Inspiring Radical Creativity

A keynote address will be held at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on the University of Northern Iowa’s campus on April 7, 2022 at 7:00 pm. These events are FREE and open to the public. Gabby Rivera will present Inspiring Radical Creativity; Empowering Young, Diverse Voices to Tell Their Own Stories. To Gabby Rivera, it's vital to encourage people of all backgrounds to create, daydream, and tell their own stores- and in doing so, open a radical space for creativity. Now, in this affecting talk, Rivera unpacks how she navigates the world as a queer, Latinx, millennial woman; how she incorporates her heritage into her writing; how she strives to be a thoughtful ally for others, and how she celebrates the healing power of community.
