With arjunraj

Date: Sunday, October 6, 2am – 5am 
Registration deadline: Sunday, September 22
Target Group: For Beginners

Everyone is carrying a story to say. What is the weight of the stories you carry? This workshop will be an experience in making one feel and not only inform ideas on topics of embodiment, intergenerationality, liminality, decoloniality, queerfeminism and intersectionality. 

The framework will contain of watching films that open up the senses to these topics. Participants will then engage in interactive (and fun) games to better grasp the topics. The session will also have many exercises to reflect on the self and also share the reflections with other participants in reflexive sessions. Participants can expect to learn methods to tell their own story and methods to collaborate with someone to tell a story together with them.

The workshop is designed for general public with a certain focus on creators of stories, narratives, content vizualisators and others:

  • Students, professionals and individuals working with filmmaking, curation, content creation, journalism, art, anthropology, sociology, writing and related disciplines of humanities
  • Community leaders, public speakers actively addressing reducing social inequalities or engaged in civil pedagogy initiatives.
