Writing the Evolution: Rituals for Narrative Liberation
Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative welcomes registration for its fall Body Ecology Womanist Performance Project Virtual Intensive… Writing the Evolution. This fall we are diving deep into the fertile space of creative writing. Writing the Evolution: Rituals for Narrative Liberation pushes the boundaries of writing to encourage participants to manifest everyday rituals in support of personal and collective liberation.
This intensive is about self-care and sustaining a personal creative practice. It’s about taking yourself seriously and writing a new story for your life and your future. This is about exploration and experimentation. Writing the Evolution is about starting a new chapter and trying something new. If you have been working on your chapbook, bring your poems. If you have been working on a novel, bring a chapter. If you want to develop a personal journeying practice, this is a place. If you don’t know why you are showing up, that’s ok! Join us for the journey.
Our time together isn’t about product. We won’t have a show. We won’t produce a chapbook. Writing the Evolution is about developing an internal spiritual connection to voice and possibility.
Be prepared to teach and be prepared to grow!

The Body Ecology Womanist Performance Project
Conceived in 2009, The Body Ecology Performance Project trains artists, activists, and educators in community action, solo, and ensemble performance through the lens of experimental, womanist performance, popular education, and cultural organizing. The Body Ecology process requires individuals to investigate the use of creativity and performance as a process for personal and social justice transformation. All are encouraged to apply, regardless of race, class, performance skills, ability, gender, sexuality, religion, etc. In short, this opportunity is open to the community.
The Body Ecology is brought to community by Betty’s Daughter Arts Collaborative’s Cultural Arts Direct Action Laboratory.
