Event Space | Ages 16 – 25
Using the themes explored in Lesley Asare’s Body Arcana performance presented at MK Gallery on Friday 20th May 2022, this workshop aims to create the space for self-reflection through movement, drawing and writing. Participants will connect to their bodies, breathe, move, nourish themselves with ease and give room to what is alive within them in a safe space.
No artistic or movement experience is necessary. Simply come with an open heart and the willingness to self-reflect, share, listen, connect with others, play and move.
