Artivism 101: How Arts and Culture Are Integral to Our Fight for Reproductive Freedom

In order to build new futures, we must first imagine them. And it will take creativity to address long-standing problems facing our communities. Now more than ever, the role of artists and cultural workers are essential to our social movements. In this interactive workshop, we will identify and discuss how artists and cultural workers partner with institutions and work on their own to create performances, illustrations, and other works that advance reproductive freedom. Using the technology of improvisation and freestyle, the workshop will culminate with the sacred tradition of the cypher. We will devise mantras, calls and responses, poetry, rap, rhythm, and movement to co-create a collective freedom song that honors our visions for bodily autonomy and reproductive justice.
