There is Nothing Wrong with People III: GRIEF

How to Be Many in the City?
01—01.04.2023

There is Nothing Wrong with People (TiNWwP), but you cannot self-love your way out of systemic oppression is a cultural program of four chapters that looks at the intersection of mental health and social justice. While mainstream psychology too often individualizes and depoliticizes our mental health, TiNWwP explores the ways in which the personal is political, and the political is personal. It investigates the impact of patterns of oppression on our well-being through workshops, performances, and conversations. At the heart of each edition lie personal stories and healing practices of people who experience the consequences of systemic oppression, to counter the increasing invisibility of marginalized voices.  

The four editions of TiNWwP aim to connect bodies, minds, and souls and to collectivize the experience of our emotions; our anger, fear, grief, and joy. After collectively connecting to anger and fear previously, this Spring edition will be about GRIEF. What causes our grief? How could we be with our grief together? Could we turn our mourning into dancing? And ignite a fire of change, connection, and joy?  

You are throughout this program invited to participate actively in collective change and new codes of conduct, within and around yourselves. And last but not least: every single edition ends with a party where we dance while cultivating energy for joyful militancy!  

• This program is curated by Johanna Couvée and Bouchra Lamsyeh, and is a collaboration with CITYLAB Pianofabriek and many other inspiring partners! Bouchra Lamsyeh is co-responsible for the artistic programming of Bâtard Festival, next to being a cultural doula, multidisciplinary artist, actor, DJ, activist, and juridic advisor. Johanna Couvée is a curator, cultural space creator and workshop facilitator working for Citylab Pianofabriek. She is trained as a somatic psychologist and researches ways to build bridges between therapeutic embodied practices, collective action, and social justice.

• As a creative incubator for art and artivism, Citylab Pianofabriek supports Brussels-based talents when developing and imagining their perspective on urban futures. In this creative process, self-formed artists define themselves, what art is, and develop an artistic voice to tell their own (vision on) herstories, hxstories, or histories. In July 2021, Kaaitheater and Citylab Pianofabriek worked together for the first time with the Inside Out festival, which functioned as an artistic mirror of life at the centers of BXL. 

"We are all parts of ecosystems and when those ecosystems are sick, we need collectively to think about how to heal that rather than only focus on ourselves." – Johanna Couvée and Bouchra Lamsyeh in BRUZZ

supported by Vlaamse Gemeenschap & Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie
