The next residency program
runs September 2020
Activation is the mutual aid residency we all need. The residency is designed to activate the practices of queer and trans Black and Indigenous artists and practitioners through the formation of care webs, enhancing access for all. Care webs because burnout and compassion fatigue are real. Collective because the quality of care increases when we meet needs together. When our needs are met, we are more likely to thrive.

Mutual aid because we take care of us. We work to build survivable social structures by horizontally and collectively giving and receiving care. Our collective care is our responsibility.
