The Threads We Weave: A History of Our Resistance to Oppression
March 26 at12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$60.00
In this afternoon workshop, we will create an intersectional historical weaving of stories of resistance to oppression. Using intermodal and multidisciplinary approaches, we will integrate movement, breath, storytelling, self-reflection, and fiber art to build a shared foundational analysis for understanding intersectional oppression, movements of resistance, and our personal relationships to ancestral legacies and collective liberation.
Experience the work of several of our Rivers of Solidarity facilitators in this pre-certificate drop-in offering, in advance of the Rivers of Solidarity: Expressive Arts for Social Transformation Certificate launch in April 2022. The Rivers of Solidarity Certificate will engage participants in reflection, personal practice, and action on issues of identity, relationship, and social transformation. We will explore ways culture, race, gender, sexual orientation, and dis/Ability weave through systems of power, oppression, and privilege, as well as ways to engage in social action towards liberation and equity. Come dream with us and practice loving, inclusive ways of being in the world together through the incomparable power and nuance of the arts.
Facilitated by Amanda K Gross and Sheba Gittens
