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 in our social movements. In this interactive workshop we will identify and discuss how artists and cultural workers are partnering 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, call and responses, poetry, rap, rhythm and movement to co-create a collective freedom song that honors our visions for bodily autonomy and reproductive justice.
