Performative Writing Workshops
''Waving Bodies'' workshop series focus on the intersection of queer and migrant identities and provide a safe space for participants to reflect on their own stories and memories through writing. We will be exploring the narrative potential of the unconscious and our senses through imaginative practice. As we pursue questions such as how to connect from personal narrative to universal and from individual experience to collective feeling, we will also be looking into the ways we connect and engage with resistance and empowerment. The workshops include four different modules. The project in collaboration with Maviblau is supported by Fonds Soziokultur.
