Join us for a listening and zine making session with Raju Rage. Together we will listen to Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice, written by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, and in our own time respond to what we are hearing. We will individually create a reflection such as a doodle, drawing, writing. But collectively we will be creating a Politics of Care zine using our reflections as the content. After the workshop we will print some DIY copies of the zine for distribution.
This event will be using closed captions, if you need further access support please email email@example.com
Bring with you any materials you would like to make a response for the zine, this could be basic or advanced: pens, pencils, paper, magazines, scissors, glue for collage, any materials you have to hand.
