For You, Performance Gift Making Workshop

Oct 07 2017
This Event is now closed
How do we gift the immaterial? What is a performative gift? Who do we make work for and how does that work change when we give it to a specific individual?

Erika Chong Shuch, Ghigo DiTommaso, Rowena Richie, and Ryan Tacata offer this FREE workshop at YBCA as part of their For You, performance project. For You, is guided by two core principles: crafting work specifically for individuals and bringing together diverse groups of strangers for an intimate encounter. Informed by our ongoing creative research, this workshop guides participants through interdisciplinary tasks centered around themes of home, identity, and belonging, and experiments with how to create performative gifts for friends, loved ones, and/or strangers.

RSVP is required as space is limited – (E): hello@foryou.productions.

Participants will be contacted prior to the workshop regarding required materials.
