Being a Body Out Loud: Trans-Indigenous and Political Practices for Artists and Activists seeking radical moves in their work, art, lives

Ni’Ja Whitson

12:30pm – 2:30pm
June 9, 2016

This physical practice is grounded in indigenous healing intelligences and African Diasporic performance aesthetics, designed to catalyze your activist, performance, and creative practices through rigorous improvisational excavations. We will create space to reveal and dismantle, where necessary, the silences, memories, ancestral knowledges, tyrannies, that are held in the body and engage how the rigors of engaging politics, social justice, and freedom in our art/activist-making can be mirrored in a commitment to radical self-care. Open to all people and artists. Trans, Queer, and Gender Non-Conforming Artists of Color encouraged. Participants should bring a notebook. #bonespeak #staywoke
