Intersections of Beauty and Fear

Empowerement Workshop

By Nora Amin


Goals and Aims

The workshop has social and artistic goals:

Social goals

- To examine violence against women as a cross cultural issue based in the universal patriarchal system and tradition

- To understand the mechanisms of oppression according to the interpretation of Augusto Boal („Theatre of the Oppressed“) where the oppressed may identify with the oppressor and contribute to the extension of the violence by denying it and by allying with the perpetrator

- To give space for each participant to look back at her own personal experiences and reflect on the spaces of violence and discrimination

- To value the possibility of collective sharing and exchange in order to remove the fear and shame related to the experiences of violence

- To reverse the common image and self-reflected image of a „victim“ into an image of „heroine/survivor“

- To expand the understanding of violence from the private sphere to the public sphere where everybody can contribute to the empowerement whether they experienced violence or not

- To expand the idea of an activist female community


Artistic Goals

- To support the possibility of artistic expression for each individual without restrictions of age, language, experience or education

- To connect the potential creative expression to the personal experiences of women

- To exercise writing a testimony or a monologue carrying personal material that is shaped within a common female rhetoric

- To empower the creativity of women

- To provide creative and artistic tools for healing and transformation
