Workshop III: Love as Power. Levitate [Porsha O & Crystal]
$10 adv/$13 on-site • Friday, May 31st • 1:00pm-3:00pm • Pilgrim House
*this event is POC only

In an age where love is commodified, weaponized and placed on a hierarchy, how do we as womxn of color, access and define love for ourselves? Analyzing Ancient Greek language, we will examine six definitions of love and use them as a basis of evaluation to improve how love operates in our lives. Participants in this intimate discussion-based workshop, will be asked to occupy a solace that requires the naming of needs and desires. Drawing from Nina Simone, Audre Lorde, bell hooks and Kendrick Lamar, we will explore who it is we become in the face of love’s peak and its nadir. In doing so, we will establish methods for how to turn love into a tool and vehicle for radical joy.
