‘Creating Future Black Spaces with John-Paul Zaccarini’ --A 5-Part Course for Future Black Leaders in Performing Arts in North America

FutureBlackSpace is a creative space of recovery, discovery and project/artist development, free from the white gaze. It is designed for POC who operate within largely white fields/institutions and offers them a chance, through creative writing practices to reflect upon how this affects or troubles their work/study through a combination of seminar, writing exercises, dialogues in group and 1-1, and mapping exercises, somatic/movement practice.

It is meant as a supportive space that offers tools to generate authentic work from the specific experience of POC.

In 5 x 3 hour writing workshops we will discuss and work with:
-collectivism
-critical consciousness
-radical hope
-strength and resistance
-cultural authenticity and self- knowledge

In order to understand how we can promote these self-governing and self-care/radical healing concepts within our creative communities, the workshops both facilitate these understandings for the participants involved themselves but also shares the methodologies so that they can be adapted for the creation of their own safe FutureBlackSpaces. The themes of the workshops are as follows:
* Geneaology, Geography, Geology
* House, Home, Continuity, Community, Collectivity
* Black Utopias and Afro-Futurism - decolonizing the black imagination
* Intersectionality within the Black Community
* Art as Care - Activism, Therapy and Art

Course dates:
This is a bi-weekly course.
Saturdays, 9am-12 Pacific/11am-2 central/12-3 eastern (6pm-9pm for Sweden)
