Upcoming:

24.04.2019 // Focus meeting education

Engagement, in collaboration with Subjective Mapping (a research coordinated by Anissa Boujdaini and Ilse Ghekiere), has recently organized several meetings with art students on the topic sexism and racism in education. Meanwhile La Permanence has been active to bring this discussion to the French-speaking community. In this focus meeting on education, we would like to bring together these conversations and consider ways in which we could join forces. Teaching allies are very welcome to join!

19h - 21h @RoSa, Rue de la Senne 30

28.04.2019 // SKILL SHARE: Hack The (Nervous) System by Xiri Tara Noir

Based on the idea that our bodies are self healing, but nevertheless often socialized to be self destructive, we will in this lab be working towards developing tools and techniques for sensing when its the time to care for, protect or defend ourselves in specific situations. We will look at how our nervous system is also connected to a bigger system of nervous systems, such as other individuals (being human or non human), and to our communities and larger environment. We will work with inherited memory and looking into ways of hacking our messed up habits. Translating this knowledge into a collective body, we will also examine how to use our developed tools in the constellation of the body of an institution, of a collective, of a group, and in relation to the non-human world.

The Skill Share is inclusive and open to all genders and bodies, but encourages individuals who identify or have been identified as female to participate. The work doesn’t require any experience neither as as dancer/mover or in an artist or activist environment. Just come as you are and with clothes that you feel comfortable and can move in. SKILLSHARE was created to redistribute knowledge and expertise throughout the arts community in Brussels and is financed by Engagement.
