Workshop with Anna-Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders of Up In Arms
Artists Anna-Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders lead a workshop for artists and creatives working in intersectional contexts
Who is this workshop for?
Artists and creatives who are collaborating and working in intersectional contexts. We invite you to come with your collaborators but you are also welcome to attend alone.
What is intersectionality?
“Intersectionality is defined as the complex, cumulative way in which the effects of multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect especially in the experiences of marginalized individuals or groups.”
– Kimberlé Crenshaw
What will you do?
Artists Anna-Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders will share the journey of their project Up In Arms: where it has been, where it is going, and what they have learned, working across differences in a collaborative art space. In sharing those anecdotes, they will generate prompts for collaborators to discuss in small groups, helping create new processes and exercises to open space.
Up In Arms is a transmedia performance project that removes the boundaries between process and product, utilizing performance, visual art, and social practice. Created by Anna-Maria Nabirye and Annie Saunders, participants are invited, two at a time, to re-embody and re-create the iconic 1971 portrait of activists and friends Dorothy Pitman-Hughes and Gloria Steinem. In doing so, the artists create a space for meaningful dialogue around racism, feminism, and friendship.
What will you leave the workshop with?
This workshop will provide collaborators the tools and methodologies to lay a groundwork for intersectional collaboration, as well as opening space for collaborators to start building their own toolkit to approach difficult conversations in collaboration contexts with dexterity and understanding.
This workshop is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund.
