Join us October 10 (Amsterdam & online) or October 11 (Eindhoven) to create your own avatar!

‘Let’s be beatific in our leaky and limitless contagion. Usurp the body. Become your avatar,’ writer and curator Legacy Russell writes in her book Glitch Feminism. She describes the possibilities that digital tools have opened up for queer identity and marginalised people in general.
When we are born, we're still often identified as either 'male' or 'female', which entails all kinds of social consequences and limitations. Our digital identities have the potential to be free from both this gender binary thinking, and the limitations of a physical body, opening up new possibilities. Who would you be if anything was possible?

During this workshop, we're preparing ourselves for the METAVERSES CHA-CHA-CHA dance party, taking place on 27 October 2022 at MU. Together with developer Babusi Nyoni, you’ll be guided in designing your own avatar, with which you will hit the dance floor on the 27th.
Don't forget to bring:
-    your computer (and charger)
-    a handful of photos of found imagery you want to use for your avatar

This workshop is held both on October 10 and October 11.
