Queer Practices / Queer Embodiment is a virtual transdisciplinary conference that aims to bring together artists, theorists, and practitioners. The conference continues our work of building a community that is focused on intentionally developing bodily practices. We want our space to be a place for political growth and experimentation using all the materials that bodywork, sex education, and cultural inquiry can provide. The conference will take place online in order to engage a broad, international audience that may be familiar with sex-positive culture, but that is not necessarily attuned to the wider set of political issues such topics often touch upon. We want to put together a conference that will be open to the public and focus on fostering challenging yet accessible conversation. 

Queer Practices / Queer Embodiment is organized by a collaborative team consisting of Andrea Rimon (an intimacy choreographer and movement artist), Georg Barkas (a tying and sexuality educator), and Karada House in Berlin.  

The conference is sponsored by Karada House and Github for Good.
