How to resist the straight world-order

You will be presented with no less than 21 concrete forms of resistance that you can use when you feel oppressed or discriminated against. The workshop is meant to empower and hands out tools to all kinds of queer hands; timid or aggressive, alone or organized, privileged or not.

After the presentation you will work with your own experiences of oppression and resistance and when you leave the workshop you will feel strong like a lion, equipped like a carpenter and intelligent like an alchemist.
