New workshops have been added to those previously advertised:
Bisexuality and faith panel
Hear from bi people about their experiences of being bi and of faith. Facilitated by Chris Poote with Rachel Berkson, reform Jew; Miriam Moules, Methodist lay preacher; and Paul Rousselle, Pagan on the panel.
After the panel talk about their experiences there will be an opportunity for other participants to ask questions and talk about their experiences.
Fitting and Mis-fitting in communities
This is a fun, interactive workshop, which will look at how people identify themselves beyond their sexual orientation. Where do you fit into the bi community? Do you feel alone or that you’re not the same as everyone else? This session will allow people to find other people with similar interests and make friends.
Bisexuality and intersections with other identities
An interactive workshop discussing experiences of being bisexual or attracted to more than one gender and other aspects of identity, such as gender, race, disability, religion or faith, culture, language, younger, older etc. Participants will be able to ask questions and discuss the issues facing people who are bi and have other identities (known as intersectionality)
Moving the In-Betweenness – Movement and creative arts workshop
A fun and interactive workshop where we will explore asserting our identity and connecting with our body in a positive way. Through creative movement activities and relaxation exercises, experienced dance and movement psychotherapist Thania Acaron, will help us explore our in-betweenness in a supportive space, challenge expectations and discover ourselves through play, expression and collaboration. Thania Acarón is a performer, choreographer and dance movement therapist from Puerto Rico, currently based in Scotland and Wales. Thania also offers international workshops on movement and wellbeing and is co-artistic director of Orphaned Limbs Collective. www.thania.info; www.orphanedlimbs.com
