Collective Care is Everywhere
July 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
The focus of the panel is collective care and care taking. Its different modes, people’s motivations for being involved and staying involved and the various manifestations of care (support work, activism, different arts practices, food, parties, sub/Dom, etc). There are countless ways to enact care in our day-to-day lives; seeing the work we do as “care taking” can invigorate our practices and our routines.
Refreshments at 6pm
Discussion begins at 7pm
Sedina Fiati is a performer, producer, creator and activist for stage and screen. She is proudly queer, femme and of Trinidadian and Ghanaian descent. Sedina means a gift from God in Ewe and she helps to be that to the world. She has been caring for folks since the age of 11, when her nephew was born. More recently, she is a part of 2 care collectives. Sedina firmly believes we all need care, support, and love and hopes to continue to build new inclusive, anti ableist frameworks where we are all connected and supported.

BRICKS & GLITTER – We are a trouble of queers who believe in creativity and collectivity, in imagining together a world worth living in. Intersectional by default and critical by necessity, we are trying to create a space for us all of us, to world build together, and to practice the future in the now. Bricks and Glitter is a community arts festival, celebrating two-spirit, trans and queer talent, ingenuity, caring, anger, and abundance.
