Reading Feminisms by Erica Scourti
With guest contributors Dimitra Ioannou & Evi Nakou.
Sessions from 24th of April until 28th of April & an Open day on the 29th of April
A workshop and seminar series over five days that draws on mostly recent queer and feminist writing to explore reading together, considering voice, narration, ventriloquism, translation and collaborative ways to engage with texts.
While the workshop is based on the form of the reading group, we will also explore performative modes of reading and listening together, including experiments with voice, note-taking and simple bodily movements, to consider how text can be embodied, materialised and reactivated in a group setting.
The final day will be open to the public, who will be invited as participants and or audience to a group presentation of readings drawn from the texts and approaches explored throughout the seminar.

#NoFilters by Yota Argyropoulou
A contemporary theater and performance workshop for adolescents.
Using ALEX(A) as a starting point #NoFilters will be a workshop for teens to create a space for freedom of expression for adolescents to talk about their experiences and thinking. Using methodologies borrowed from performance and contemporary theater, the participants will be asked to tell their own stories, their small-scale revolts, their disappointments, their future dreams, unfiltered and unedited: the workshop will give a voice to adolescent voices and their imaginaries.
Based on the central thematics of ALEX(A), the participants will use improvisation, performative actions, and critical usage of social media and digital imagery to talk about the present socio-economic situation and issues that affect and concern youth today (tech surveillance, artificial intelligence, the climate crisis, activism etc.)
Part of the workshop:
Presentation of performance Alex(a) to a teenage audience.
Q&A: Discussion and feedback from teenage audience.
Outset Partners. The program has been awarded with an Impact Grant.
