Workshop description:

After the Tatamagouche Free School some of us thought that we could use a workshop on how to give a workshop. If our workshop-giving skills were more effective, we’d have a better time sharing our numerous talents, interests and skills in a way that doesn’t replicate the power
relations too-often present in our normal learning environments. Moreover, if more of us felt qualified to lead workshops for our neighbours, we might continue to grow culture of sharing. In this workshop we’ll talk about what makes a good workshop, and what makes a bad workshop, and
we’ll brainstorm ideas for new workshops and structures for what those workshops might look like. Bring your memories from past workshops and ideas for future workshops.

Workshop facilitator:

Zachary Gough is an artist and student/teacher who works collaboratively and responsively with other artists, community groups and organizations to promote alternative economic systems and toward deconstructing the capitalist viral value paradigm and its manifestations. He often uses participatory and immaterial media, such as radio and performance, to address materialist concerns, such as labour, power, debt, education, and liberation. Zach is a graduate of the art and social practice MFA program at Portland State University in Oregon. zacharygough.ca
