🚨Call for Proposals Summer 2018: Control! This summer, we’ll join the conversation around the #metoo
movement for bodily autonomy with programs related to the idea of Control. We hope to present programming that speaks to us about autonomy and agency, power and coercion, resistance and refusal, as well as programming that challenges us to imagine new models for relating. We’ll be joined by artist in residence Yasmine Diaz, whose work addresses themes of gender, bicultural identity, memory, family honor, and shame—highlighted most pointedly through the medium of collage.
For this quarter, we’ll attempt to name the ways that we negotiate with power and add to the conversation about consent. Which experiences, identities, and collective practices might we refuse if given the opportunity? In what ways do we resist abuses of power? What would it feel like to have autonomy over our bodies? How do we learn to assert ourselves and to hold boundaries? What does it mean to take control?🌸
We are now accepting programming proposals relating to these themes for May through July 2018. Maybe you can give a talk about mental health and bodily autonomy; host a workshop on models for community self determination; invite high school students to create a ‘zine about boundaries; or present a performance about divesting from people pleasing.
📝Help us to imagine a more radical, empathetic, and consensual future by submitting proposals for summer programming at the WCCW! Link to the complete call & guidelines in the bio.
