  • Saturday 11th June, 11:00am - Until Monday 11th July, 3:00pm
A one-day retreat with LGBTQ+ theologian and artist, Rev. Dr Angela Yarber, on the role of art in decolonising feminist spirituality.
Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber is the author, artist, and founding Executive Director of the Tehom Center, a non-profit teaching organization about revolutionary women through art, writing, academic courses, and retreats.   She will lead a one-day retreat, "Decolonising Women's Spirituality", to launch her "Queering the Dream" exhibition at Lancaster Priory. The exhibition is free of charge and celebrates women of colour from history and myth from 11th-21st June. It is sponsored by the Friends of Lancaster University.   During the retreat, there will be a presentation, discussion, a guided drawing process, ritual, embodied exercises, guided reflections, and Q&A.   Dr. Yarber will present an engaging lecture alongside art on the topic of Decolonizing Women’s Spirituality. Deconstructing the role of art in #whitewomensspirituality, she will unpack the differences among appropriation, appreciation, and what it means to engage in spirituality alongside otherwise underrepresented perspectives, in addition to exploring understandings of queerness and queering.   With both decolonization and queering in mind, Dr. Yarber examines what it means for women’s spirituality to be at odds with everything around it, and how, together, we can invent and create places to speak, thrive, and live.   We are grateful to the FASS Decolonising Lancaster Events Fund for sponsoring this event.   To register, click here: Decolonizing Women's Spirituality Tickets, Sat 11 Jun 2022 at 11:00 | Eventbrite
