Future Station: Rest (Is A Political Act)
February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
For our next Future Station event we are pleased to welcome artist Niki Colclough to host a workshop to explore the value of rest, linking to our wider theme of Care in the Arts.
Rest (Is A Political Act) is a workshop in a series created by Niki Colclough. Join us to speculate on new strategies for re-framing and re-prioritising rest in a society orientated towards productivity.
In an act of collective care we will explore alternative understandings of and approaches to work, reframe laziness as a creative tool and contemplate societal/political structures of wellbeing.
Niki will share her research in progress alongside a bespoke tool designed to introduce the 7 types of rest, together we will consider the types of rest we might need before dreaming up joint strategies for implementation.
The event is designed for those working precariously in the creative industries who would like to work towards more joy and sustainability in their working practices. This is a relaxed and interactive session where contributions and thoughts on the topic are welcomed.
