Ride The Sky is an ongoing research, artistic and curatorial project that aims to redefine and challenge the meaning of masculinity, reject the ideas of traditional maleness as a protest at conventional gender roles and explore the apparent contradictions present in the idea of modern maleness.
These workshops/sharings will be a way to open the project up to other people, to share experiences and create a dialougue. To this end, participants will be invited to bring their own activity/sharing/thing into the group. Although my practice is based in Performance, anyone is welcome to apply regardless of background, gender indentity, race, or even if they are an artist or not.
As far as submissions go, it is pretty open ended. Maybe tell me about an issue you have with masculinity as it is, or how you feel about you're own. Tell me what activity or dicussion you would bring to the group.
Be prepared to be open to acting and reacting to what happens in the group.
If you'd like to have a look at what forms the project has taken so far and maybe get an idea of some of the things we may do, go to my website www.roberthardaker.com. There is a page for Ride the Sky, have a gander.
