This is a free event but booking essential

With Murat Hassan and other special guests

As future ancestors what are the legacies we wish to leave behind? Queer space-makers Murat Hassan and claudiu oprea will lead an artist panel followed by embodied creative exercises to explore the roles of the future elder, queer ancestry and developing queer traditions.

Taking inspiration from Murat’s travelling Altar installation we will record queer stories and co-dream our futures together through body and breathworks, creative writing and meditations.
