Hair, eyes, skin, scars: our bodies offer clues to our history, but how others interpret those clues is often out of our control. Join us as we explore the body as history with three Phoenix poets. Read more about the poets below.
Raji Ganesan is the daughter of South Indian immigrants, a tenacious sister, and a super fun aunt. She is an educator, facilitator, dance & theatre artist, and healing justice worker committed to the lives and well being of young people. Named a 2019 Robert Wood Johnson Culture of Health Leader, she seeks to ensure that schools and organizations serving BIPOC youth center love, justice and community wisdom. She currently supports the Health & Wellness program at Reframe Youth Arts Center — a youth-run arts center in South Phoenix. You can follow her on Instagram @mostlyraji to keep up with her various adventures in performance, pedagogy, advocacy & good cooking.
