Following Katherine MacBride's project Polyvocal Subjects that took place at Transmisison in 2014, Katherine presents:
two days of workshops, food and performances/ a publication as doing things together in public/ a collaboration between Alison Smith, Anna Frei, Anna Mclauchlan, Anneke Kampman, emilia beatriz, Fred Hystère, Kari Robertson, Katherine MacBride, Kym Ward, Romy Rüegger, Sandra Alland and Transmission.
Facilitated by Katherine MacBride and Transmission
28th July, 11.00-17.00, Transmission Gallery
A day long workshop considering listening and the conditions in which we listen, through different modes of shared experience — breathing, moving, music, audiovisual presentations, talking, laughing — with Alison Smith, Anna McLauchlan, Anneke Kampman, Kari Robertson, Katherine MacBride, and Kym Ward.
Each contributor will bring a range of materials/exercises/processes for us to consider and explore together as a group. Please also feel welcome (but no pressure) to bring anything you’d like the group to consider and we will make space in the day for it. The format and pacing of the day will be responsive to the needs/desires/attentions/capacities/experiences/knowledges of everyone present. Particular attention will be given throughout to collective-care and self-care.
The workshops will not be recorded in any way as this can be inhibitive of open processes of exploring complex and sometimes difficult questions together. There is no pre-intended outcome other than a desire to have some shared experiences and conversations that can nurture our present and future thinkings and doings. There will be a pdf produced afterwards and circulated on the Transmission website which all workshop participants are welcome to contribute to.
