In the meantime, if you would like to volunteer your time and/or lend us one or more of the following: car, laptop, speaker, projector, generator and help us make this event happen at its full potential, please fill out THIS FORM.
Elle Barbara’s Black Trans Live Projections Rally; a multi-borough event and video installation in Tio’tia:ke / Montreal.
Elle Barbara asks Black women to answer questions relating to their trans-feminine existence. In this original piece conceived in collaboration with MAPP_MTL, Elle Barbara reimagines the parameters of political rallying in a post-COVID world with synchronous outdoor video installations set across Tio’tia:ke, to raise awareness on the erasure of Black trans women and girls.
Elle Barbara demande aux femmes Noires de répondent à des questions liées à leurs existences transféminines. Dans cette pièce originale créée en collaboration avec MAPP_MTL, Elle Barbara repense les rassemblements politiques pour un monde après-COVID avec des installations vidéos extérieures synchrones à travers Tio’tia:ke, dans le but de sensibiliser à l’effacement que font face les filles et femmes trans Noires.

**this workshop for QTBI folks only** RSVP ONLY : FILL OUT THIS FORM TO RESERVE.
Using poetry as a means of expression, the workshop will consist of discussions surrounding identity, mental health, race, class, disability, gender, sexuality, and faith. This is a space where participants will discuss healthy boundaries, and the importance of saying “no”. As Black people of diverse sexual and gender identities, we are often commodified and tokenized, and left feeling drained. The goal is for the participants to leave with a new sense of purpose, and to explore alternative artistic avenues for expressing their emotions.
5:00 PM: MAGI MERLIN

Performance (open to all) will broadcast on the slutislandfestial.com homepage.
