SPARK’S 2019 FYRE Applications are open!

Calling all creatives! SPARK Reproductive Justice NOW is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2019 FYRE Media Justice Camp! This year’s FYRE Camp, Read to Filth, seeks to hold an intentional space for Queer and Trans young people of color and cis Black women in the South. We intend to hold this space for movement building and elevating our voices through the creation of a ZINE!

A zine is a compilation of illustrations, poems, narratives, essays, and photos that typically follow a central theme! The theme for this zine is “Our Lives, Our Stories.”

So, if you’re a photographer, writer, poet, illustrator, or you’re interested in learning more about these creative outlets in relation to Reproductive Justice…this is the camp for you!

Queering Wellness: A Healing Series!

Spark Reproductive Justice NOW! and Osatyam present Queering Wellness: A Healing Series.

Is the winter weather putting you in a funk? Is legislate session giving you anxiety? If so, join us in our first session of the Queering Wellness Series, titled “Pranayama.”

Queering Wellness is a series focused on transmuting oppression-based trauma for queer folks in Atlanta through a series of whole self-nurturing practices. The series consists of 3 sessions, each building upon the skills of the last to guide folks in tailoring a more complete personal wellness practice.

Pranayama, or life force, is the conscious awareness of the breath.

This opening session is comprised of conversation, ritual, and food. We kick off our series by connecting breath control, autonomy, and each individual’s personal power.

**Queer and Trans folx will be prioritized at this event, but all are welcome**

Queering Wellness is a series! Stay tuned into SPARK and Osatyam for more information about the rest of our sessions!
