Vogue Studies: Using Community History to Inspire Action

  • 24 E Congress Pkwy Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

 In this workshop, participants will examine a concrete example of how the history, experiences, and traditions of community can be harnessed from within for collective empowerment. Engaging in a movement workshop based on the Black and Latino queer dance form known as voguing, participants will feel what it is like to use aesthetic movement to inform struggles for justice. Participants will be walked through the workshop, examine its components, and then have a chance to map out some of their own ideas for specific workshops that might empower their unique communities of learning and organizing.

Note: This workshop is open to People of Color only. 

Facilitators: Benji Hart & NIC Kay
