Community - Sat 1 June 2024
WORM Rotterdam
Start → 14:00
End → 17:00

Creatives with Unseen Disabilities (CUD) is having another workshop on Saturday 1st of June with guest speaker, and WORM’s familiar face, Sekai Makoni.

During this session Sekai will share her learnings from her ‘Period’ residency, focusing on period health and barriers to holistic support among Black people who menstruate. From exploring cultural approaches to centering Black voices, to sharing methods for dealing with periods and fostering a co-learning space, Sekai will guide us through a reflective journey.

We’ll journal, reflect on our personal period journeys, and explore various perspectives on menstruation. This session is for everyone who menstruates or experiences period problems. Join us for open and supportive conversations where we learn from each other and grow together!

14:00–15:00 we have vegan soup and some bread and snacks. You are also welcome to join just for the workshop.
15:00–16:45 workshop (incl. break in between)
16:45–17:00 slow closing

The workshop will take place at WORM, Rotterdam (in the Slash Gallery). The exact address is: Boomgaardsstraat 69, 3012 XA Rotterdam.

Creatives with Unseen Disabilities is a community of disabled artists. Their events centre those who don’t have a sense of disability community, feel they need to mask their disabilities or are exploring their access needs. No disability is ‘too small’.
