Collage Workshop: What does the experience of pleasure look like to BIPOCQ bodies?

Lørdag 3. juni 2023
Kl. 12.00 - 15.30

Join us on Saturday 3 June, 12:00 – 15:30, for the “Collage Workshop: What does the experience of pleasure look like to BIPOCQ* bodies?” with Diaspora Kollektiv. Capacity: 15 participants. (*Queer Black Indigenous People of Colour)

Through collage creation and guidance, you'll have the opportunity to connect with your inner creative voice and create a visual representation of the physical sensations associated with pleasure. What does it look like to connect with your body? Which senses do you experience pleasure through? What are the limits you set upon yourself or that are set on you?

Using a variety of collage materials (textile, colour paper, markers and magazines ) and personal items (anything from a favourite food packaging to a selfie), you'll have the freedom to express your own unique experience. Come away from this workshop with a tangible reminder of the pleasure you've explored and a deeper connection to your body. Don't sleep on this one-of-a-kind experience fam!

We’ll serve snacks, warm/cold beverages and good vibes. You are welcome to bring your own art supplies, but if not, we got you!

Diaspora Kollektiv is an artistic collective founded by Marea Vigesaa (she/her) and Marie Cole (she/her). The Diaspora Kollektiv’s aim is to create activities that generate discussions, artistic expression and educational conversations. They facilitate QBIPOC (Queer Black Indigenous People of Colour) art enthusiasts who need a space to discuss and create art related to identity. Our goal is to hold an intentional space that offers art and cultural activities that nurture curiosity for the QBIPOCs based in Norway. The collective will introduce various workshops and artist talks around different creative concepts. The purpose is to explore and exchange knowledge, skills and interests together. Through these activities, we invite the QBIPOC community to join us in a welcomed and comfortable environment to experience their creativity and voice.

This event is part of the public programme that activates the “Dissident Publics: Future Artefacts of Queer Methodologies” exhibition space. The project is supported by the Arts Council Norway (Kulturrådet), Nordisk Kulturfond, Bergen kommune, Vestland fylkeskommune, L’Institut français de Norvège, the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Riga, and the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Paris.
