'Poiesis' or How to sabotage global transformation

I run a little thought game on how life-making is connected to androgyny or anything “in between.”
It's about the "i" in poiesis; and how to go beyond being a provocateur and instead making the provocative the normal. 

But while we try so passionately to create something new, what are our hidden patterns that perpetuate the old?
How much neoliberal residue do we all carry? 
What kind of thinking and doing required to really transition? 

Some clues lie in the way we tell stories to ourselves and others;
in our symbols;
in the way we set goals;
in the way we use language.

This session is a philosophical mindbend I havn't shared before. It has been shaped by countless playshops; and informed by the hard labour of threading a provocative PhD through an orthodox system.  

So basically, with all that, we cover the ego, the others, the in-between, and the ether. Oha.

PS: On the sidelines of the event, I'll be my alter ego - Dr Divine - offering the occasional divination. You’ll recognise us by the hawker tray. Come play!
