Workshop: Worming Up! at not/no.w.here
Worming Up! is a free workshop by Worm (Angela Chan) with assistance from Farah Ahmed for QTPOC creative practitioners. Those interested in environmental issues will find ways to confront these challenges by exploring the parallels between environmentalism and the arts.
Through conversations, note-making or drawing, we will identify the toxins that impede our creativity. Then we’ll discuss how to implement these strategies for ourselves. Our aim is to think about how we can nurture self-reflective spaces of resilience and empowerment towards alternative ideas of ‘sustainable creative practice’ within our communities and environment.
During the workshop we will explore:
Environments: What are the effects of climate change on QTPOC? What are the challenges for QTPOC in the arts? Are there parallels in the barriers that stop us from flourishing?
Actions: What is QTPOC representation like in the environmental and artistic spaces and how is fighting for social justice vital to our daily work as practitioners navigating them?
Alliances: How can we create networks and spaces of solidarity, trust and empowerment towards our self-critical practices in these areas?
This workshop is intended for QTPOC. If you have any questions about this, please email to discuss.
