Creativity Demonstrates Infinity: Creativity of the Oppressed

 

Ujima Arts & Cultural Organizing Learning Pod

 

Facilitated by Dzidor

 

In our next Micro-Learning Pod series, we will explore how creativity, imagination, and experimentation can serve as a tool for healing. We will read poems, play games, essays, short videos, and music that demonstrate the transformative power of creativity.

 

Most importantly, artists will work on their own healing narratives in a supportive workshop environment. This workshop is rooted in the pedagogical and political principles specific to the popular education method developed by Brazilian educator Paulo Freire and later expanded in Augusto Boal’s work in Theatre of the Oppressed.

 

September 1st | I create, Therefore I am
Creators will be answering questions, drafting narratives around their own work, and writing their own Creative Manifesto. Creators will be encouraged to practice playing, welcome imagination, and create their own guidelines.

 

October 6th | Moving through Stillness: An Invitation
Creators will look at videos, poems, stories that center on healing narratives, and be challenged to create their own pieces based on written work.

 

We will examine how healing, or the question thereof, as shared through the work of Jojo Abot, Dzidzor, Sun Ra, Montell Fish, Worlasi, and Moor Mother’s work.

 

November 3rd | Space is the Place: Creations Shared
Creators will invite us into their world and share their own artwork (poems, videos, stories) inspired by the workshops.
