Self Care = Self Love
An opportunity to intentionally engage in a deep self-assessment and create a plan for self care in community. Spoiler: self care is actually self love. We will be naming different ways in which you can personally address eight areas of self love and which ones may be right for you. You will leave this workshop with a personalized plan for your own self care as self love. This workshop stems from the “burn-out” that is often difficult to avoid in white supremacy organizational culture (Tema Okun).
One of the most important ways in which we, living in an oppressive society, can dismantle the societal systems of oppression and thrive beyond only working to survive, is to take care of ourselves. In a world where the systems and people in power benefit off of us not taking care of ourselves, doing so is a revolutionary act. It's an act of rebellion through self love. This workshop addresses self care and self love in a deep, truthful and active way. This will be a decolonized and liberated space.
An opportunity for you to take active control over your own life path, work/career, learning investments, next steps and overall personal and/or community goals. In this workshop, you will be using reclaimed concepts of mission, vision, values, SWOT analysis, and strategic planning applied to your own artistic and/or activist paths. As an artist, arts manager, arts worker, activist, entrepreneur and/or beyond you will be offered various strategies for development to create your own strategic plan for yourself or your next big project. You will leave this workshop with a personalized plan to take forth into your life journey. This will be a decolonized and liberated space.
Transformative Justice & Creating Community Accountability
An opportunity to interactively learn about Restorative Justice, Transformative Justice, Community Accountability, Nonviolence, and Radical Self Love used to address and move forward from racism and oppression within yourself, your community, your workplace, and beyond. In this workshop, you will be introduced to non-punitive processes that address and prevent harm. We are talking through how to “hold” people accountable — focusing on the “holding” part of that. These are resources you can use in your arts and culture organizations, rehearsal processes, university classes, and more naming the transformative justice work of Black, Indigenous and people of color including Mirame Kaba, Shira Hassan, Mia Mingus & BATJC, Audre Lorde Project, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, SARSI, Theater Folks of Color, Kazu Haga & East Point Peace Academy, adrienne maree brown, and so many more.
