Athena Farrokhzad - Workshop at Baltic Circle -festival

Writing as a Means of Struggle / Writing as an Archive of the Unthinkable (Workshop)
What is memory? What is art? What is struggle? What is trauma? What wounds dwell in the subconscious, how is the subconscious structured as language and how do we write, if writing is a game of darts, where the arrows are boomerangs? What does it mean to use writing as an archive of the unthinkable, both in the past and the future? Why do we keep decorating the dinner table of the power which holds us hostage? What are the implications of mobilizing the necessary strength in order to fight for vulnerability?
In this workshop, we collectively explore how writing can be used as a way of transforming subjects and societies.

Feminist Anti Racist Night School (FAR) : Confronting class in institutional settings

In our first FAR night school learning session of the fall 2018 semester, we will engage with social class, a concept that is often ignored in discussions of structural inequality in contemporary society. How do institutional settings (such as health care, school, work places) privilege and reward behaviour associated with certain class groups? How does class intersect with identity categories such as race, gender and sexuality? How can we question class-based barriers in our everyday lives (as a friend, family member, student, employee, consumer etc.)?
