Who are we really?

In a single, live 3 hour session

In this 3-hour learning session, we'll look at what and who we are, and find language to communicate it without strictures.

Taking a very anti-capitalist, anti-patriarchal stance, the only structure we'll submit to is the coursing patterns of nature and the rhythm in our own spines.

We'll look at pictures, read poems and create a comic at the end in our own unique language.

Rewilding Our Stories

The history of everything is the history of oppression and distraction. 

Tonight we will loosen ourselves from this history and ask what, what stories do we tell when we are free?

You will:

  • Draw new/old kinds of pictures.
  • Have new/old kinds of ideas.
  • Connect to what we really are, before society shaped us.
  • Share in a unique atmosphere of learning and exploration, sharing stories,  in conversation and comics, with the group.

Society keeps directing our attention away from things that are alive and things that were created by or created us.

The whole world is so interested suddenly in AI. The excitement over AI making art or whatever  is forgetting that elephants that make art, and whales sing, and crows play, and that people  invented culture.

Tonight we will share and invent our culture.
