Cubitt, 6pm, Thursday 11th May 2023

Disability can create an ambiguous stance on living. This workshop takes an embodied, amateurish and creative approach to exploring this ambiguity through the 5th and 6th houses in astrology. These houses usually denote creativity, pleasure and children (5th) and health, health problems and work (6th).  We will use writing, mark making, drawing and meditation to further our relationships with these areas of life and/or our birth charts, taking inspiration from disability justice movements and astrology to explore and expand notions of care. No prior knowledge of astrology is required but if you are able to come with your birth chart / time of birth, that would enable more personal chart exploration.
