Games for Artists and Non-Artists Workshop (GFANA) – 9 Aug

This workshop is run by Rewind Fastforward Record an initiative aimed at engaging with LGBTQ+ community groups on a national platform.

About this event

“It is not the place of the theatre to show the correct path, but only to offer the means by which all possible paths may be examined” – Augusto Boal.

This workshop will draw on each participants immediate responses to the unofficial Foyle Pride Archive in the care of the Rainbow Project. Activating a series of techniques and exercises we will locate commonalities and intersections within their formed perspectives. Through the consideration of our bodies as both subjects and sculptural objects, participants will have the opportunity to physically manifest their ideas and concepts. This new manifestation may allow us to elaborate on how we may perceive or locate ourselves, the viewer, in this exchange of ideas. As we physically occupy the triangle of Viewer, Artist and Art-object we may attempt to develop a new line of collective questioning. Considering ideas around art, protest and our place within this sphere. A series of meditations and responses will take place offering a new ‘way in’ to the archive activating the space as a discursive platform and crucially an intergenerational place to belong.

Places are limited, so please book a ticket and if you need to cancel let us know.

Rewind Fastforward Record (RFR) is undertaking a three-week residency at Void Gallery, Derry, creating new work with local LGBTQ+ community groups and artists. Images of this workshop may be exhibited as part of the final RFR exhibition with your permission.
