Radical collective visioning is creating and sharing ideas as an act of defiance and reclaiming tradition. Awesome Black believe stories are not things that can be owned, but things that we discover and nurture with the help and influence of culture and community. Collective Visioning: Dismantling Individualism in Story Creation, will use their First Nations worldviews and current experience co-creating an Indigenous Speculative Fiction universe, to share practical ways to reject western concepts of ideating alone and competing to bring worlds to life. In this workshop they ask participants to pick an issue they believe needs mobilisation in their communities and group each similar concept together. Groups will be tasked with mutually developing the setting for a story in which their chosen change could occur. Each participant is then invited to write a short poem or paragraph of prose based in this setting.
Workshop to be held on Zoom at Sat 02 Oct , 1.00pm – 2.00pm AEST. Zoom link will be sent to participants 30 minutes before the workshop begins.
