How can the arts support spaces of collective exploration and representation?

María Heras

Wednesday 27th June, 15.00-19.00, ICTA-UAB

In this workshop, we will experience embodiment and participatory theatre as an arts-based approach to engage in a collective exploration and empathic dialogue about a transversal topic within Degrowth and Environmental Justice: non-violence. How do we articulate non-violence from our experiences? What does it mean in terms of relationships? What needs and challenges do we face when engaging in such practices? Through this experiential workshop, we will engage in reflection in action to explore first-hand embodiment as an explorative and dialectic space. This is expected to contribute as well to the final group assignment, by offering a taste of a different research and communication method and contributing to group reflections about the topics approached.
