Let’s explore our embodied selves and our political labor through movement, writing, meditation and social sculpture. Delight our senses to create sanctuary in (disability) activist struggles. Find movements that push boundaries and translate into everyday life, create and share resources for art/life practices that can sustain ourselves and our communities. In our daily scores, we will reach for joy, ceremony, and edge, beyond the studio and into the street. Open exploration, experimental access: we find out together what works for those who assemble.

Aren’t able to join for the full-workshop? Single day or two-day registration is available for $50/day.
