we (been) here Workshops
Skeleton Architecture has organized these workshops “as a safer space for Black bodies to collect and center ourselves in particular solidarity. The workshops are all-gender inclusive, gender-presentation inclusive, age inclusive, and body positive; all body types and levels of experience are welcome.”
10 AM–12 PM | RENEW & RESTORE
This workshop with Maria Bauman creates the time and context to slow down and experience restoration within a capitalist climate that is depleting all of us. Drawing upon Maria’s background in partnered stretching and in designing and implementing movement experiences for people of all ages and levels of comfort in their bodies, she is offering safe tools for muscle ease and lengthening and greater breath awareness. We will relieve tension, increase flexibility, release energy stashed in the body, and take in the caring energy of the group – leaning on one another literally and figuratively for greater release than is possible alone.
1 PM–3 PM | EMBODIED LISTENING
Embodied Listening is a guided workshop facilitated by Grace Osborne and Shea Rose that emphasizes vocal toning, listening, and medicine melodies. Space is created for all participants to sing improvised phrases, be immersed in healing drones, and listen in new ways.
