Read & Repair with Elodie Mugrefya & Amy Suo Wu
Date: Sunday, 28th November 2021
Time: 11:00-13:00 (Read) & 13:30-15:30 (Repair)
Location: #varia (Gouwstraat 3)
The text selection and our reading choreography in October was made by Elodie Mugrefya. During this reading session we'll be with texts which do not claim the 'traditional' practice of archiving, so to break off its norms and authority, but which are very much attentive to and invested in modes of memory-caring.
- Islands of Decolonial Love by Leanne Betasamosake Simpson
- The Plot of Her Undoing by Saidiya Hartman
The Repair session will be guided by Amy Suo Wu. In this session, we’ll explore facilitator and healer, Meenadchi’s Decolonising Non-Violent Communication (DNVC), through the practice of mending damaged textiles. To join please bring along a piece of damaged textile. We will provide needles and thread, but feel free to bring along your favourite haberdashery accessories. Do wear comfy Sunday clothes as we’ll start the session with a qi gong exercise.
Please let us know if you would like to join by emailing email@example.com. We will be wearing masks in the space and keeping a 1.5m distance. For this reason, there is a limited number of places.
