Art + Action Intensive: Addressing Forced Migration


SLIDING SCALE: $15, $25, $35

Join us for two workshops which will explore ways to address forced migration through movement based modalities. Despina Sophia Stamos offers passTRESpass, which poses questions about the ways we negotiate boundaries in human relationships, physical space, and cultural practices. Katja Kolcio offers Orientation: A social, political, and physical practice, which will consider the challenge of making creative practices accessible without sacrificing their integrity and depth. By contextualizing creative physical practice as a civic and social endeavor, this workshop will make connections between dance and world building. Open to any artist looking to expand their practice and learn ways to take action in their communities.
