In the workshop we will want to cover:

– The importance of the Crystal Elixir and its preparation;

There is gonna be an Altar and we invite folks to bring fruits, flowers as well as amulets and other personal items to place on the altar and bring back home after.
We ask people to bring a small candle that will be lighten in the beginning of the workshop as well as crystals if they feel like it.

We ask the participants to write in a piece of paper by the beginning of the workshop they names and date of birth and how they would like to feel by the end of the day or weekend/what they would like to bring from this workshop with day and place by the candle (they don’t have to share with no one, of course). At the end we will serve Crystal Elixir to everyone.

WE DEY: Annual Program 2018/19

In the beginning of 2018 WE DEY X SPACE announced its first Open Call for projects. We invited Black artists and artists of Color to apply with proposals for exhibitions, events, workshops, kitchen table talks and film screenings around the topics of decolonial art and knowledge production, community, self-care and empowerment.

We were overwhelmed by the amount and quality of proposals we received from all over the world, projects that center Queer/Trans*/Inter/Black People/People of Color and focus on utopian notions of community, belonging, healing and body politics. We thank all the artists & collectives who put so much time and thought into their proposals! Thank you all for affirming our vision on how important it is to self-organise and to continue creating a space for art and knowledge production by Queer/Trans*/Inter/Black People/People of Color.

We are looking forward to what is coming up until May 2019 (when the lease for WE DEY x space will expire): exhibitions by Nicole Suzuki, WE DEY kültür gemma! fellow Lydia Nsiah, NueNua AKA Ama Josephine Budge, Rudy Loewe, HAIR (Esther Ojo & Terisha Harris), Pêdra Costa& Jota Mombaça and @decolonial_killjoy, workshops and empowerment sessions by Noah Sow, Maisha Auma, Paola Bacchetta and Fatima El-Tayeb, filmscreenings curated by Nine Yamamoto, healing circle by Liaam Iman and of course our ongoing projects. Keep yourself posted on our website: WE-DEY.IN and on Facebook & Instagram.

We would like to thank the WE DEY collective for all their unrelentless effort, time, energy, love and care! Thanks to Jaqueline Ejiji, Esther Abiona Ojo, Janine Jembere, Nicole Suzuki, Amoako Boafo, and all of you who supported us within the past year and who continue to do so in the years to come! Despite the fact that we did receive hardly any public funding we managed to continue the fight for self-determined spaces for BPoC’s in Vienna because of all of you!
