Body Acceptance for Creatives Workshop


In this workshop, we’ll explore how the fatphobic diet culture we grew up in has affected our ability to work efficiently as story-tellers. We'll uncover the origins of our meanest thoughts, and we examine the consequential meaning we have assigned not only to our own bodies, but also to the bodies of others we collaborate with in our quest to tell stories.


In this workshop, you will learn effective, actionable thought-work techniques that will allow you to change the way you speak to yourself and the way you feel in your body.


As these improve, so will your ability to thrive in all areas of your life - most pertinently, how well you are able to tell the stories you wish to tell.


This festival also offers an educational screening of I'm Too Fat for This Show. It is highly recommended that you take this workshop in conjunction with that, as it will further your depth of understanding around the messages we receive about diet culture and fatphobia. It will allow you to further appreciate the proven, useful tools that are offered in this workshop.


***All proceeds from this workshop go 100% towards the artist.
