If your body could speak, what would it say? Join us for a movement and performance workshop with British Ghanian artist Lesley Asare who creates large-scale drawings using her body.
Asare’s work explores identity, personal histories and the experiences of Black Women/Women of Colour and aims to create a space for play, self-reflection, self-awareness, empowerment and healing.
This workshop will explore how self-care can be practiced through the movement of the body and will be recorded on paper using oil bars.
Workshop cost includes entry to the performance of Body Arcana on Friday 20 May.
