ADA CABLE - FROM COMMUNE TO VILLAGE (7.45pm approx - arrive any time)
Ada Cable is a transfeminist cyborg witch, who works in the arts and academia to understand how social systems fail, gets hurt when they do, and seeks how we can work better at them. She has presented and exhibited globally on communities, power, and trans women's lives and is an activist with UK trans info and the non-binary inclusion project.
In her talk, From commune to village: How certain schemes to improve the queer condition have failed, she will explore themes of disposability, abuse, and how queer communities form around small close knit "families".
GARY WINER - THE NEGATIVE ASPECTS OF LOVE (8.45pm approx - arrive any time)
Gary and Bob met in 1980 while learningSpiritual Aikido together. After 23 years of studying different modalities of self development techniques, exercises, therapies and processes, from shamanic homeopathy, reflexology, Reiki, kiatsu, kinesiology, hypnotherapy, tarot, oracle, psychic and intuitive readings and coaching, psycho-energetic techniques such as voice dialogue, EFT, constellations, LoA, NLP and Gestalt, along with their own personal life experiences, they created FREEDO.
Many people find it difficult to agree that there could be a negative aspect of love. However, once we understand both sides of love, the positive and negative, we can gain balance and flow, and take love to a whole new level. In this workshop audience members will be introduced to FREEDO, an interactive and experiential practice based on the understanding and ability to live life in an optimal way.
Tickets are £5 in advance (£3 concessions) or £10 on the door.
