At The Moonstead - 2551 Hempstead St. West Valley (S.L.C) 84119
A workshop on queer joy story sharing, character building and an opportunity for your character to be represented in an oracle deck while also getting the oracle deck card once it’s ready! This is an invitation to CELEBRATE our joy and unique beautiful stories that connect with our queerness.
This is a space for people who identify as queer to come together and tell stories of their juicy, sweet and heartwarming experiences. Then we get to know some of the characters already made for oracle deck for inspiration and example. Then there will be a brief guidance on how to build a character.
After that we get to fill character sheets with our own identity or alter ego or made up character we admire and you get a chance to decide if you want the characters you made be represented in the oracle deck card.This workshop will be led by Yasi Shaker who is an artist, sociologist, gender and sexuality educator and food justice researcher and one of core team of Mobile Moon Coop. Note from Yasi(workshop leader and oracle deck creator): as a queer non-binary person of color who works at the intersection of art & food justice, and as a gender and sexuality educator, this project is an attempt to merge these interests into a single interdisciplinary project to allow conversation between these disciplines to strengthen one another. As someone constantly navigating the margins, I’ve always brought race and queerness into environmental and food justice spaces, which are often predominantly white. Living on the margins myself it's hard to not see myself in stories that me and the people in my life can relate to so it’s important to create these characters that represent us while supporting myself.

A word on financial transparency:

Each quarter 30% of The Mobile Moon Co-op's proceeds go to a solidarity part.  This is an expression of direct mutual aid to the grassroots. The remaining funds compensate for materials and the time and energy of our core members. We are devoted to making high-quality products and hosting meaningful community events. Navigating compensation for this work is a difficult and confusing task! Depending on the month we make anywhere from $8-20/hour.  We ask for donations for many of our events so we can continue honoring our commitment to take care of ourselves and our community in the form of material and financial redistribution. 

We hold values of anti-capitalism and community liberation from oppressive structures. We know that everybody has bills to pay and we don’t want finances to stop anybody from participating in our workshops or events. We offer a sliding scale, work trade, and discounts for QTBIPOC (Queer and Trans Black and Indigenous People of Color) and are open to other ideas for improving inclusivity. Please don’t feel discouraged to join in on an event if you can’t afford the entry, but please write to us and let us know so we can help! Lack of money is not a barrier to entry into our space. 

We encourage everyone to take a moment and reflect on your privilege and hold yourself accountable for what you can truly offer.  We believe in solidarity over charity and acknowledge the cruel and extractive historical processes that have led to certain community members being positioned with greater access to resources than others. If you’d like to give more than the suggested donation and/or sponsor a moonbox or workshop registration for someone else, you are welcome to do so! Just reach out and let us know. 

Thank you to everyone for all the ways you choose to engage with this project! We wouldn’t be here without the mycelial network of support and enthusiasm from you all.
