THE BODY, RECLAIMED
The Body, Reclaimed, hosted by Natasha Muluswela in collaboration with BLACKONBLACK, is a 6-week interactive workshop for womxn to create art, listen to music and discuss what body positivity means to them. Each session will explore the varying relationships we have with our bodies by focusing on a different body part e.g. chest/shoulders, bums, tummies, breasts and backs.
We want to facilitate an open dialogue and create a safe space for womxn to explore and cultivate the relationships they have with their bodies and remind them that body positivity includes all womxn, including women of colour without judgement — a great place to start is seeing positive representations.
By the end of the workshop, you will have worked on your own, full self-portrait that will become part of a larger group mural representing the beautiful diversity of womxn.
The weekly sessions will be held on zoom and once you sign-up, we will send you a weekly email with a zoom link to the class!
You can grab a ticket for the whole 6 weeks or just a specific session, with 50% of sales going towards Natasha and 50% going towards the support of Doctors Without Borders who save people’s lives in conflict zones, natural disasters and epidemics and now, during the Coronavirus pandemic.
