Relationship Anarchy & Mapping Connections: Atoms, Vines, Constellations, Bus Lines

Presented by Marta & Victoria

Let’s discuss the construct of amatonormativity, challenge the power of the sex- and romance-based relationship hierarchy, wax poetic about the radical potential of relationship anarchy in strengthening and sustaining us as lovers on society's fringes. Let’s share numerous ways of visually/spatially mapping points of interpersonal connection, as exercises in both appreciating current mainstays in our lives and identifying our individual desires and needs. Let's shift a paradigm, let’s imagine and draw together!
