RSVP essential / Limited numbers

Register now at Beketovamash@gmail.com until 22d of March

This workshop invites you to create your very own Map of a Queer Feminist Journey/Futures. You can visualize your journey (so far) and draw the map that tells your story. You can imagine your future journey and manifest it in the universe! We will draw and craft using different colors and materials. This workshop is a successful tool to connect artistic practice with your own story in order to raise important questions on political, historical, and private levels. In the end, you will go home with the map of your life (or an imagined future) and some important reflections on it.

The creative process will take 1-1,5 hours leaving us with 30 min for a sharing circle. You will have an opportunity to open up and share your stories with others using the map. At the same time, the logic and structure of the workshop allow participants not to share and keep their maps private. We will get creative, vulnerable, triggered and curious. We will get healed and inspired by each other’s stories!

This workshop is only open to all queer and feminist people. 


Saltanat Shoshanova is a researcher from Kazakhstan, based in Berlin. She studies decolonial queer feminist cultures and art in Central Asia and beyond. Her writing and artistic practice deals with family history, trauma, food and queer joy.
