From the intimacy of a whisper to the urgency of a siren, the tools we use to communicate carry many signals. This weekend, Performance All Ages and artist duo Lucky Dragons invite you and your family to consider the ways we use communication tools — including words, body language, and clothing — to build community.

From punk to prep, clothing has the power to help us recognize and build bridges between like-minded people. This workshop investigates the role of self-presentation in peacemaking, organizing, and resistance through garment-making.

For further research into technologies of peace visit with new web-based artworks by Lucky Dragons including an audio piece “The Problem Solver” that examines strategies for peace making, a scrolling treaty collection “Accord”, and “World Unanswered Question” an open and ongoing repository for questions that welcomes visitors to contribute a question.
