Planet Abundance creative workshops
Planet Abundance is a series of artist led interlocal workshops taking place in Scotland, Colombia, Germany, India and Japan. We will be using Teresa Feldman's feminist science fiction script for "Planet Abundance" to imagine a world where billionaires and current power elites have left Earth, leaving behind a world lead by women*. In this feminist world, we collectively organise planetary and people care through feminist economic principles. In a world now freed from the once dominant ethos of greed and competition, Earthlings adopt a feminist abundance mind-set, finding new and old ways to work together in repairing their world.
In Glasgow, the workshops will be led by artist Ailie Rutherford along with environmental campaigner, trans rights activist and local councillor Elaine Gallagher. Two evening workshops on 12th & 19th August will take place at Category Is Books queer independent bookshop inviting a small group of participants to collectively imagine Planet Abundance
