Deadline Aug 15 | Call for Participants: The Impact of Listening and Being Heard: Oral History, Archives, & Advocacy Workshop with Sady Sullivan

Deadline: Wed, Aug 15, 2018

Description: We are seeking CUNY participants and artists for this free 8-week interdisciplinary workshop culminating in a publication and public event “The Impact of Listening and Being Heard: Oral History, Archives, & Advocacy,” in which we will use a lens of radical empathy to deepen our oral history practice. The workshop will be led by Sady Sullivan during the 2018 Fall semester at the Graduate Center, CUNY. With our eyes on the prize of a more equitable and peaceful future, we will focus on oral history as a tool for exploring the dynamic relationships of identity, voice, embodied knowledge, belonging, and becoming. This workshop will be useful to people at all levels of experience with oral history who want to reflect on self-care, care for our narrators/interviewees, and the role that sharing life histories plays in caring for our future. Through shared experiences such as Deep Listening (both Buddhist and in the spirit of Pauline Oliveros) and sound therapy exercises, we will strengthen our intuitive listening skills and explore collective (un)consciousness.
