Over/come: No Shade at Living the City

30. October 2020  @ 17:00 1. November 2020  @ 20:00 CET

*The work­shop is addressed in par­tic­u­lar to BIPOC, who will also be pri­or­i­tized in the pre-reg­is­tra­tion.

Artists from mar­gin­al­ized com­mu­ni­ties, often oper­at­ing on the fringes of soci­ety, con­tribute enor­mous­ly for the cre­ation spaces where groups of peo­ple can come togeth­er to social­ize, cel­e­brate, and inno­vate free from the con­straints imposed on them, and these spaces form the foun­da­tion for the estab­lished nightlife spaces that have become for­ma­tive for cities like Berlin. How­ev­er, it is often that those peo­ple are not com­pen­sat­ed for their work and con­tri­bu­tion, spe­cial­ly in com­par­i­son to their coun­ter­parts who belong to main­stream iden­ti­ties. Bureau­crat­ic obsta­cles and struc­tur­al chal­lenges are imposed on them on a reg­u­lar basis hin­der­ing their access for finan­cial, spa­tial and oth­er types of resources.

This three-day work­shop pre­sent­ed by the Berlin col­lec­tive No Shade aims to help artists from mar­gin­al­ized iden­ti­ties to deal with those barriers—how to get fund­ing, vis­i­bil­i­ty and fos­ter their career growth. The lec­tures and talks are tai­lored for peo­ple who expe­ri­ence dif­fi­cul­ties due to who they are and the spe­cif­ic restric­tions that are embed­ded with not belong­ing to a hege­mon­ic demo­graph­ic.

Impor­tant info: Due to coro­na restric­tions we have a lim­it­ed capac­i­ty, if you have reg­is­tered and can’t make it, please send us a mes­sage at noshade.workshop@gmail.com, so we can give the spot to some­one else. The work­shops will be held in per­son inside the Liv­ing the City exhi­bi­tion in the for­mer air­port Berlin-Tem­pel­hof.
