Edgar Fabián Frías
presented by at land’s edge

Divine Creators!!! : Intro to Divination Practices for Creatives is an ad-hoc, site-specific, and adaptive workshop meant to help support the initiation, development, and flourishing of ancestral divination techniques within contemporary creative communities. Attendees will learn about divination from a trans-historical perspective and will find ways to weave in (a) personal divination practice(s) into their creative, organizing, educational, and cultural work. Attendees will leave the workshop with a zine on divination techniques and all of the psychic tools needed to initiate and sustain a scrying (hydromancy) practice.

*The workshop has a maximum of 11 participants. It takes place in the evening. Please wear comfortable clothing. This workshop is FREE BUT requires sign up and approval by moderator.

*Optional: Please bring protective amulets, charms, plants, essences, crystals, etc. Bring something to cover your head (a hat, a scarf, a hoodie). Please contact seeingyouseeingmeseeingyou@gmail.com or go to https://goo.gl/forms/SRc4YMPLDoFoT7T53 to register.

*Queer, trans, gender nonconforming, low-income, people of color, indigenous people, immigrants, and folks at other intersections will be given priority.

at land’s edge is an autonomous pedagogical platform based in East and South Los Angeles that nurtures the voices of cultural producers who are committed to social transformation. We understand pedagogy as not only a method of education, but as a critical space where the processes of teaching and learning, knowledge and action, and self and community are reflexive, interwoven, and oriented toward the liberatory possibilities of a just and democratic world.

DecolonizeLA is an autonomous group made up of Los Angeles-based artists, educators, Indigenous Peoples and activists, and members of HRLA’s Programming Committees. This group recognizes the word decolonize as a process and action word that must center Native/Indigenous people’s autonomy, and the liberation of all oppressed peoples as its goal. Steps toward decolonization include acknowledging the effects of colonial oppressive structures, and demanding an end to the legacy of environmental, physical, psychological, cultural and artistic violence, and opposing the perpetual structure of inequity forced upon us by colonialism and white male hetero-normative supremacy. This group recognizes that many communities are working towards decolonization. We embrace and celebrate this opportunity to honor their work and transform our city.
