Four one-day laboratories in performative intervention in the public space, delivered by artist Francesca Castellano.

Through collaboration participants are encouraged to explore their individuality and creativity with new ways of moving through space and to initiate the rupture of "normal" social codes towards a potential "other" way of living-sharing-inhabiting the world.

The overarching aim of the laboratory is to enable participants to expand their own individual practice by encouraging experimentation and activism.

Open to participants from all backgrounds. You can join any of the four sessions.
