Consequences – ONLINE workshop
When: Wednesday 27th May, 6 – 7.30pm
Where: via Zoom.us
Book: Email Ruth@metalculture.com
In response to the current situation we will be continuing with our Consequences ‘Chat and Draw’ workshops online. Now more than ever it feels important to come together (in whatever way that might be) and have these important conversations.
Metal is inviting those who identify as female from across Peterborough to come together and talk about what’s important to them. It’s part of a city-wide project called Consequences that brings together different groups of women, sharing and passing conversations between groups to create a stronger picture of the female voice for the city.
Join Metal and artist Kate Genever for a chance to come together, chat and draw in this online workshop. Within the workshop we will discuss the consequences of NOT coming together as women, about our lives, our families, our communities etc.
Participants will be supported to draw and doodle their responses to conversations. For the workshop please find something in your home to doodle on, this could be, paper, a newspaper, a magazine, cereal box or even a receipt. Feel free to use whatever you have to hand to draw with, pencil, felt tip pen or biro for example.
You don’t have to be good at drawing to take part. It’s about the conversations we have together online as we draw, doodle and colour collectively. Spaces are limited, please book your spot by emailing Ruth@metalculture.com. Once booked we will send you further information of how to login and gain access to the online workshop.
Other ways to partake:
Activity packs – We appreciate that people are at home looking for things to do together – or you may be more limited about who you can connect to at the moment. The original Consequences workshops were only for groups of women, but these activities are for all ages and all genders and you can do them at home. > http://www.metalculture.com/consequences-activity-pack/
