POLITICAL DRAG WORKSHOP - 24/06, 2.30: Creating art inciting change & incorporating non-Western techniques, Leah Kirby/CYRO explores socio-economic & political issues through non-traditional formats. In this ONLINE workshop, they dissect their practice & techniques for building drag performance around the black trans experience: How to consider mental care when delving into art that centres honouring your anger & voicing underrepresented narratives through queer art? This workshop allows participants to begin making political drag through their own lens. Bring something to use as stimulus - an object, material, picture... something with significance to you. You'll be building a piece with CYRO there to support & mentor. This is about letting go of judgement & allowing your experience & voice to come through in your art. QTBIPOC-led event, QTBIPOC-identifying folk especially encouraged to apply. BSL-interpreted.
