Bloc Social: Queering the Page, Mon 30th November, 6pm
There has never been a more important time to take control of our narratives and this is particularly true of the diverse LGBT+ communities. This workshop will explore the relationship between identity and creativity, how we set down our stories in compelling ways, and work to provide a canon of hegemonic queer narratives. Some of the conversation points might include: What do we mean by ‘queer’? Is there a queer narrative that is distinct from a mainstream narrative? Does that exist in form as much as in content? What are its precincts? Is there an explicitly feminist aesthetic founded on morphology, and what might that look like? What did lesbian and gay culture look like throughout the 1970’s-1990’s? What is the role of performance art/ cabaret in creating dominant queer/LGBTQ+ narratives? Book here
