|The Muse Department - 3150 18th Street, #354 (at Treat), San Francisco.|
Mer Zandifar, Iranian-American art, music, and hypnosis therapist, will lead workshop participants to use their voices to move past self consciousness and into powerful self- and community expression.
We'll discuss how liberating the voice is symbolically and literally related to activism, and how self-consciousness and judgmental attitudes about our voices can be internal manifestations of oppressive forces in the world. Through vocal exercises and learning songs of freedom/liberation/revolution, participants will experience the healing and empowering action of community vocal expression. http://merzandifar.com/
Jim Dias, activist and musician, will be accompanying the circle with guitar and drum.
This event takes place as part of Art Span's Open Studios. Participants are invited to stay for sound healing sessions at Mer's studio, or explore the Mission and other neighborhoods hosting Open Studios this weekend. http://artspan.org/

About the Art as Propaganda Workshop:

Each month we’ll learn a different skill and history of a radical movement, with an opportunity for participants to create art for community actions. Newbie and experienced artists and activists all welcome.
