a place for zinesters - writers and readers
in March. This is a huge project of mine, and for two of the events, I want to hire a Zine/Minicomics Artist to create something capturing their experience. One event will be a Panel Discussion on Intimacy & Art on March 16th, and the other is a workshop called Un-Idealizing Sex on March 19th. Both events will be at the WOW Cafe Theater in Manhattan's East Village.
Intimacy and Art? Wednesday, March 16th at 7pm. A Panel Discussion on the intersectionalities between Performance Art and Acts of IntimacyThe panel will consist of the two featured artists from the festival and few outside artists who explore intimacy in their work. The Zine/Minicomic I'm hoping to come from this event would be entertaining, first of all. Secondly. it would act as an orientation guide at future festivals.
Un-Idealizing Sex, A Workshop. Saturday, March 19th at 12 noon. An afternoon workshop on Sex and Sensual Touch presented by Lydia Love and Simone WolffThis workshop will have two parts to it. The first part will allow the participants to engage with the material in a non-threatening environment. There will a lunch break after which, the participants who would like to, can come back for a freer, clothing-optional exploration of the workshop concepts. The entire event will be very heads-up and consent based. The nature of this event is obviously very personal, and an artist would need feel comfortable in that kind of space. Familiarity with energy work would be a plus. The Zine/Minicomic I hope to come from this event would firstly be respectful. From there, I would like it to be approachable and fun.
