Miss California

Location

Los Angeles
United States

Miss California is a poetry zine and a double helping of goodness-- the 8-page piece is written by wild child Augusta Gail, and lettered by Aurora Lady. It's color on cardstock, so it's just right for pulling apart and putting on your wall or inside your math notebook. Or keep it like a secret as it comes, with pretty colored thread holding it all together.

Comic Zeichnen - Workshop für Jugendarbeiterinnen, Sozialarbeiterinnen, Pädagoginnen... (Salzburg, 6.6.2014)

Teaser Image: 

06.06.2014 von 10.00 – 18.00 Uhr
Sitzungszimmer der Landesamtsdirektion, Chiemseehof, 5010 Salzburg
Mädchenarbeit ist ein Bereich, in dem Fachkräfte sich viel mit patriarchalen Situationen auseinander setzen müssen, oft ohne diese selbst beeinflussen zu können. Die Geschichten von Diskriminierungen und Gewalterfahrungen, die Mädchen aus ihrem Leben erzählen, werden von den Mitarbeiterinnen täglich gehört und ausgehalten und können zu Wut, Ohnmachtsgefühlen und Burn Out führen. Sich selbst in einem Comic-Workshop als Autorin und Künstlerin zu erleben, Gefühle aufs Papier zu bannen oder scheinbar unlösbare Probleme einmal in die Hände einer Superheldin zu legen, eröffnet neue Sichtweisen und bringt Entlastung auf einer unmittelbaren, emotionalen Ebene. Durch die gemeinsame künstlerische Arbeit, die von eigenen Erfahrungen und Gefühlen ausgeht, ergibt sich oft auch ein sehr persönlicher professioneller Austausch, der als unterstützend und bereichernd wahrgenommen wird.

Teaser Image: 

As continuation of the symposium series “Artistic Interventions. Collaborative and self-organized practices. With a focus on anti-racist and feminist perspectives” held in autumn 2013, we are organizing for the current semester, a symposium on “Artistic Interventions and Education as Critical Practice – (Un)learning processes, community engagement, and solidarity” scheduled for April 2014.

This symposium’s presentations and two workshops—with Janna Graham/Centre for Possible Studies, Nicolas Vass/ Precarious Workers Brigade, and Annette Krauss/Read-in—will explore the ways that artistic interventions can create open and shared collaborative and informal learning spaces for empowerment and agency in educational contexts, and in exchange and solidarity with social movements.
