Powerful Owl by Chloe Pringle

Latorica brings Slow Wing to Byron Bay as a satellite workshop of the Uncivilisation festival, a UK event held by The Dark Mountain Project on the same weekend in August. Slow Wing is a weekend workshop led by transdisciplinary artists Ilka Blue & Cherise Asmah, the workshop takes participants on a slow and intensive exploration of cultural and biological extinction as we search for ways to belong and adapt to a changing world.
The Dark Mountain Project is an international network of writers, artists and thinkers who offer up a challenge to the foundations of modern civilisation. Practitioners of all ilk, who can burrow deep into stories of death, dying, place, belonging and mythologies of this land, are invited to attend the Slow Wing workshop.
The workshop involves 2 full days of storytelling, walking, writing, deep ecology & creative practices. Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th August: 10am – 4pm both days.

Slow Wing is free of charge but places are limited to 25 and will be offered through a registration process.

For a registration form or enquiries please email ilka [at]
