Time & Location

About The Event
Facts show us that in our society, womxn of color are the most deprived of rest. Historically, we've been the ones in positions of care and service. We've been the caregivers, the service providers, and the problem solvers. The age of COVID 19 has just amplified this critical work. And we're tired, still.
This gathering is about leaning into community as we collectively work to cope with the debilitating physical, mental, and emotional fatigue we regularly experience as womxn of color, now overwhelmingly compounded by our upended world. We hope to source some sustainable practices for our well-being, as well as, strategies for resilience.
Our conversation will be centered around the question: In these times of hyper-productivity, how have you given yourself permission to just rest?
PLEASE NOTE: This space is open to WOCA members and all those that self-identify as womxn of color working in the arts. While we appreciate all authentic allies and accomplices, we ask that this gathering space remain exclusively for those that self-identify as womxn of color.
