A lunch and workshop with Nicole Garneau
The work of building a better world can be harsh and overwhelming – join artist Nicole Garneau for a meal and workshop focused on fortifying movements for social change and the people who make them happen.
In this workshop, we will explore artist-initiated, non-religious sacred ceremonies that knit communities together and create activist spaces grounded in love. We will co-create a simple ritual that addresses the needs of the people in the room, helps us learn about ceremonial structures, and makes room to practice sacred consent.
Friday, October 19th
12-12:30pm, lunch in EDH lobby
12:30-2pm, workshop in EDH mainstage
Co-sponsored by Ethics and the Common Good, Hampshire College Theatre Board, and Hampshire Theatre Program.
