Social Focus: Gender Equality

Istanbul, Turkey

Heidi Boisvert will travel to Istanbul to work with participants on addressing gender equality by blending various digital technologies and using her “play as process” approach. Her workshops encourage participants to connect personal experiences of trauma to a collective narrative by transforming embedded somatic scripts and historical patterns into live drawings and music, all generated from their body data.
