Taking Back Power: Mapping Out Care | Free Word

15 April 2020
18:30 - 21:00

Presented by:
Liv Wynter


A mapping workshop on spaces of care

When capitalism strips us of energy, time, resources and the overall individual power we hold, we need to find ways of caring for each other and build new strength and hope.

Our survival depends on this.

Join Liv Wynter for a workshop where, together, we will identify and catalogue a range of places that provide care, from homeless shelters, to community centres, foodbanks, libraries, free spaces, art galleries, public toilets, and more. Come and contribute the start of a new community-led resource documenting spaces of care and alternative power.

Liv Wynter

Artist, educator, activist and writer

Liv Wynter is a live artist, writer, and activist from SEL. Liv has been performing internationally since 2015, making live art that centres around radical action, community, rage, and power. With successful residencies at Project Indigo, Wysing, FACT, Tate, and working with Free Word, the Hayward Gallery, Liv has gone on to cause chaos through both their personal practice and their commitment to antifascist, antisexist, and anticapitalist organising. Currently, they are dipping their toe into theatre, with their debut, 'And So The Choir Gathers, Before It is Too Late', selling out over 5 nights at The Bunker Theatre Nov 2019. They are currently a support worker at The Outside Project and Hearts and Minds, and stand in solidarity with all groups organising against oppression. Quit your job, join a band, start a gang.
