Description

The Fat Politics of Moving Bodies – An Introductory workshop for people who want to create fat inclusive movement opportunities with Kalamity Hildebrandt

In this full-day workshop we will explore what fatness has come to mean in our society, and how fat oppression, in conjunction with many other patterns of injustice, works to shape our day to day lives, including our relationships with other people and our own bodies. This workshop will pay particular attention to how anti-fatness impacts our collective understanding of what movement is for, and all too often turns movement focused activities, spaces and conversations into hostile environments for fat people. Fat oppression targets those of us who are considered ‘too fat.’ But every one of us, no matter what our body size, is impacted by this form of injustice, and each of us can play a role in tearing it down. Let’s work together to create a world in which no one is taught to hate their own or anyone else’s body.

There are a limited amount of slots for classes offered at the middle and lower end of the scale. Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. *Adapted from wortsandcunning.com/blog/sliding-scale
