Reclaiming Justice: Self-Care for the Resistance
June 25-29th, 2018 – 9am-5pm
Opening Gathering – Sunday, June 24th @ 7pm
Are you passionate about your community and collective well-being? Are you feeling overwhelmed and confused by these rapidly changing times? Do you wish you could connect with others and find creative ways to express all you are feeling, thinking and noticing?
Then come join us for a week of connection, play and creation with Interplay. This week-long program for people of all ages and diversities who are community activists, artists, practitioners, healers, social justice-lovin’, creative souls and beyond. We will co-create space together for our stories and collective wisdom to be shared. Through the philosophy and practice of Interplay, we will tap into our birthrights of movement, sound, song, story, dance and stillness – connecting to the wisdom of the body and what it has to tell us about navigating these challenging times with grace, ease, love and creativity.
Our week will include a variety of rich experiences – connecting with local groups and organizations in Atlanta and their creative resistance work, dipping into nature and playing with the wisdom of the wild, playing in different public places and space, and other spontaneous moments where anything is possible (a justice dance parade perhaps?!?). In all this, we will get the chance to explore social justice themes and ideas that are important to us as a collective as we put art into action. We will celebrate our communities, feed our collective imagination and learn what self-care for the resistance feels and looks like. Atlanta, home of The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, The National Center for Civil and Human Rights and so much more feels like a perfect place to gather for collective social action.
We welcome the largest spectrum of diversity – across political, social, economic, social boundaries as we appreciate the richness that emerges in the coming together and deep full-body-dialogue of folks and ways in which we walk in and experience the world differently.
Your team of quirky, creative and capable Interplay leaders will include Agnotti Cowie, Foluke Beveridge, Christine Gautreaux, and Natalie Abdou – local and international Interplay leaders who have shared and played in a diversity of community and social justice contexts.
The program is week-long although we have limited 1-day only spaces available for those who are unable to attend the week-long program. Scholarships and sliding scale options available.
Please contact Christine Gautreaux at firstname.lastname@example.org or text at 770-256-9191 for registration and details.
Cost $500 or pay what you can (sliding scale higher or lower) for the week. Daily rate – $125.
We are excited to play with you soon!!
