Space for Diversity
How do we ensure safe spaces where individual identity can flourish, regardless of race, gender and sexual orientation? How can we create a dialogue in which we enable such a safe space and preventing epistemic (heteronormativistic / white privileged) violence in a world in which this flourishes? This night, Manon la Decadence from Adem Inn and Melanin Kris from Artchitex le Visionairs take us on a journey towards more safe inclusive spaces.
Manon la Decadence studied Humanistics but is better know as a genderclown, hosting safer spaces in Rotterdam with their GenderBendingQueerParty and Get a Room! at WORM, and talks and support groups at The Hang-Out 010 and Adem Inn.Melanin Kris produces sound, still and motion pictures that can be read as 21st century imagining of afro-futuristic aesthetics. "We believe all are conscious co-creators of reality and therefore Artchitex of the future. We do not believe in limitations but celebrate results. It's a lifestyle". "Spoken word is expressive and enables performers to speak openly and honestly about issues in a controlled and safe environment".
