Kelli Dunham: Laughter is a Revolutionary Gesture: Humor as Self-Care
October 13, 2018, 3:30 pm-4:30 pm
Laughter is a Revolutionary Gesture: Humor as Self-Care (Kelli Dunham): The nature of our work as intersectional activists and life as queer folks is intense and that, combined with passion, can sometimes contribute to depression and burnout as well as a single focus on movement work/our passion that is neither healthy for us as individuals nor effective. Yet there is a notable historical precedent for intersectional activism using humor as both a strategy in communication and a tool for personal empowerment. This workshop explores how we can reclaim humor and use it to relieve stress, communicate better, subvert the rigid gender binary and build resilience. You don’t have to consider yourself “a funny person” to participate in this workshop. It’s about discovering our own unique sense of humor. We’ll have fun and NO ONE will make you wear a clown nose, promise. The event is FREE.
