October 14 through November 12, 2021, 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Co-Lab: A Queen’s Liberation Story is a collaborative performance and programming series taking place at the Contemporary Arts Center.
Jori An Cotton and Desirae “The Silent Poet” Hosley will collaborate as writers/ directors to produce A Queens’ Liberation Story. A Queen’s Liberation Story will give black and brown women/womxn a reassurance that talking about sex should not be shamed or hidden. Reclaiming your power in your sex story starts with you! Liberation within empowers a narrative that doesn’t shy away from reproductive health yet gives women/womxn the tools and knowledge needed to take ownership of their bodies with the help of Contemporary Arts Center, Cradle Cincinnati and Queens Village Cincinnati.
Through a series of three guided workshops over a 1 month period, a diverse group of black and brown women/womxn from across Cincinnati engaged in writing and sharing their stories in their own words will create a culminating performance based on their sex stories.
