Description: IPOP is hosting a two-day programme of students, artists, practitioners and thinkers involved in queer world building. Aiming to propagate a communal inquiry into modalities for supporting queer performance and giving and receiving feedback in and out of educational institutions. To foster an open, non-hierarchical approach to queer research, the form of presentations within the symposium will be varied and open and will include lectures, workshops, performances, and other structures as proposed by the presenters.

Topics include: coloniality and queerness;  biomythography, critical fabulations and disidentification as queer performance practices; queering feedback lenses, methodologies, best practices; tranimacies: alternative engagements with the other as pedagogical practice; Drag Mothering, care, kinship and education.

Although we prefer people to stay the whole day, coming to specific events is  more than welcome.
