Tools for self-fragilization
he/him or they/them
13:00 - 14:30
‘Men should be tough’, they say. ‘Expressing vulnerability is a weakness’. But is it really? Vulnerability can be a strength that we can consciously use to relate and navigate the world. In this workshop we will explore self-fragilisation as a tool for connection, empowerment and peace. We will be embodying vulnerability and learning how being fragile can dismantle tension or even aggression. There will be some moving, some writing and… a little pillow fight.
