Workshop for Parents, 2pm - 3pm
Performing ways of being with each other / Karen Michelsen Castañón
The workshop proposes a humble experiment. Are there ways of being and creating with each other knowing that we are part of a racist system of exclusion and violence? Can we do it with an awareness that mixed spaces will not imply BPoC people doing most of the emotional and educational work? Participants are encouraged to bring to the workshop examples of "othering" in educational material, images and/or very short texts. We will use group exercises from performance and body work to create an experimental collage of images and movements.
Concert, 3pm – 4pm
Mapu & Bismani Huni Kuin
Mapu Huni Kuin and Bismani Huni Kuin – heads of the Huwã Karu Yuxibu Center in Acre, Brazil – sing songs of the Huni Kuin people, as well as authorial songs in their mother tongue, the hãtxa kuin, and in Portuguese language. Mapu and Bismani offer a musical experience full of stories which bring the amazon forest and the importance of its preservation closer to children's reality, and invites the public to think and understand the contemporaneity of indigenous knowledge beyond European exotic imaginary. The Huni Kuin people live on the Brazilian-Peruvian border in Western Amazonia. The stories shared by Mapu and Bismani Huni Kuin will be translated into German by Enesi M.
Workshop, 4pm – 5:30pm
Reading & Painting - Kabá Darebu / Luisa Lobo and Fernanda Palmieri
Luisa Lobo will read from the book Kabá Darebu of the indigenous Brazilien writer Daniel Munduruku. The book is about the actual situation of indigenous people in Brazil. Afterwards Fernanda Palmieri will do a meditation with the children to visualize their totem animals.
Leyendo Resistencia/ Widerstand lesen/ Reading Resistance / Verena Melgarejo Weinandt
What does it mean to read Resistance? It can mean reading stories about the connection of indigenous communities to nature, to understand why they have defended the country with such vehemence for centuries and why they have made a non-capitalist value of water, wind and sun comprehensible. It can mean making the fight of the ancestors against colonial supremacy understandable in the supposedly mythical stories of indigenous communities, which are still politically explosive to this day. Resisting by reading aloud also means giving the child a positive and strong self-image, for example with regard to his or her own body, sexuality and skin colour. Reading out resistance can mean reading out stories in which the families consist not only of father, mother and child, but perhaps of several fathers or mothers or perhaps of a mother, an aunt and the best friend. Reading resistance means that in the stories Lupita can also be in love with Ana and John often prefers Jenny. Reading Resistance means that Black children, Children of Color, indigenous children like all other children, can be superheroes*, strong and smart. Through children's books, children can be taught where their* limits lie and how best to articulate them. Reading resistance means paying attention to the world of dreams and desires and taking them seriously as important sources of knowledge.That and much more can mean resistance.
