Micha Cárdenas' workshop “Building Local Autonomy Networks” Wed-Fri Jan 
16-18 University of Sao Paulo

Join my workshop “Building Local Autonomy Networks” from Wednesday to 
Friday, Jan 16-18 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m, Escola de Comunicação e Artes, 
Unuversity of Sao Paulo at the 8th Enceuntro of the Hemispheric 
Institute of Performance and Politics. In the workshop, we will be 
developing a group movement piece to perform in the Urban Intervention 
portion of the Enceuntro on Friday, January 17. This site specific 
movement based performance will be created by the group, using wearable 
electronics and building on the concepts of networks, autonomy, safety, 
anti-violence and resistance addressing the local issues that workshop 
participants introduce.

Workshop – Building Local Autonomy Networks – The Autonets workshop will 
engage participants in a discussion, using Theater of the Oppressed, 
dance and performance exercises, of how we can form local networks of 
autonomy and solidarity in order to create community based responses to 
violence we face on a daily basis, which may be personal, gendered, 
racial or state sponsored. This workshop is being presented in 
collaboration with Cero29 in Bogotá, Colombia.

Local Autonomy Networks (Autonets) is an artivist project focused on 
creating networks of communication to increase community autonomy and 
reduce violence against women, LGBTQI people, people of color and other 
groups who continue to survive violence on a daily basis. The networks 
are both online and offline, including handmade wearable electronic 
fashion and face to face agreements between people. The networks are 
being established through a series of workshops, performances, 
presentations and discussions at art, activist and academic venues in 
the Americas and Europe. The project was started by Micha Cárdenas but 
is rapidly expanding into an ecology of networks involving many artists, 
hackers and activists.
