This Fall Heart of the Beast is launching: Care Work Workshops based on Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice. This dynamic book is illuminated by the wisdom and labor of disabled queer femmes of color, and is chockful of dreams, schemes, and invitations for all of us to grapple with in our day-to-day lives.
Offered on zoom, each workshop in October will include discussions of the book along with a participatory art activity like weaving and stamp making!
The workshops will take place from 7:00pm to 8:30 p.m. (CDT) on October 5th, October 12th, October 19th, and October 26th with a closing celebration November 2nd featuring a panel of guest speakers.
The workshops are centered around disability justice, joyful accessibility, and community. The workshops will be facilitated by aegor ray with teaching artists Nailah Taman and Julie Boada leading art activities.
