Public Event: Thursday, March 29 - 6pm
In this workshop, Sherman will explore access, identity, and place, through a queer lens in the context of contemporary politics and self-care practices. Sherman will unpack and examine how queer modality has shaped a broader sense of self, access to resources and privacy, and approach to self-care and intimacy. This workshop is designed for LGBTQIA identifying people and all participants should be mindful of their use of language and respect for difference and personal boundaries.
