Workshop «Speak Up: women of color reclaim the narrative », BOZAR (Brussels)

Two-hour workshop ‘Reclaim the Narrative’, for 20 women with a history of migration, preferably Afro-descendants. The main objective of the workshop is to feel the concept of ‘the personal is political’ by sharing personal stories of migration and realizing that these echo in other personal stories; to develop an interest in the archiving of personal and family history from an artistic perspective; to acquire basic techniques to organize their ideas and to be able to move from testimony to narrative; and finally to understand that regaining possession of the narrative brings agency, creativity and a sense of history.
