Workshops:

Tuesday 26/02/2019 6.30-8pm

Mapping Queer Utopias Concrete Poetry Workshop
In what timescapes and landframes do queer utopias exist? What materials did-do-will-would they consist of? What did-does-will-would a map of them look like?
Join us for a discursive, creative workshop led by artist and poet Hannah Summers where we will explore the queer cartographic potential of concrete poetry.
We encourage you to bring your own text – some writing you did, a poem you found, a bus ticket, whatever! But be prepared to break it down, mix it up, and pour-mould-set-erode it into something new.
(All materials will be provided)
EMBASSY Queer Futures Zine Making Workshop

Sunday 24/03/2019 1-4pm

In this workshop we will use the technique of Bricolage as a way to reappropriate images and text creating new meanings through intertextuality and collective authorship. The goal of the workshop is to disrupt existing hegemonic frameworks for cultural production and to imagine queer futures. Our Queer Futures Zine will be made available online.We aim to create a generally safe and inclusive environment at our events and ask people to respect each other. If you feel unsafe at any point, please feel free to speak to a member of our committee.
