Join us at Rhizome this fall for a monthly poetry fuddle! What's a poetry fuddle? In certain parts of England, a fuddle is a party where guests bring food and wine — a casual and collaborative gathering. Add an activity or game that gets everyone writing, and it's a poetry fuddle. You don't have to be a poet to participate; you can just enjoy fuddling around. Local poets Amy Eisner and Leslie Bumstead will get things started. Bring an idea, refreshments, or nothing at all.
Women Uncorked is a gathering for women only, talking about sex - the science, the social, the politics, the personal. It's a safe place to break free of cultural taboos on talking honestly and personally about sexual topics; a place to laugh and enjoy talking about sex in a group with no judgement -- and no one saying "that's TMI!"
Special guest speaker Surya Angelique Shofar, sex-sensual healer, researcher and writer will start us off with an introduction to sacred sexuality. From there, the trajectory of the evening will be ours to create together. Bring your ideas for topics to discuss - personal questions, issues, problems, successes, pet peeves, observations or current events. If it has to do with sex - it's on the table.
A gathering for woman only, talking about sex - the science, the social, the politics, the personal. A place where nothing is TMI, where we can hear and be heard, find common ground, and celebrate our differences. A safe space to break free of cultural taboos about the exchange of sexual knowledge. What we don’t talk about gets a life of its own fueled by secrecy and imbued with shame. Let’s talk!
Rhizome's communal learning series is untaught and unled. Our discussion/action groups are an opportunity for people to learn about a topic by reading, discussing, and then experimenting with the ideas that grow out of our discussions. In Readings in Radical Education, we will explore the myths and politics surrounding conventional pedagogy, and engage with the possibilities raised by works such as Jacques Ranciere’s The Ignorant Schoolmaster, Paolo Friere’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and Bell Hooks’ Teaching to Transgress.
