Fat Activism can be a lonely, isolating and hurtful position to hold in a world that constantly prioritizes the ideal, normative body. This workshop will seek to create a space in which people can share their experiences, and approach questions surrounding how to respond to ‘haters’ without shaming them, how to move forward when your defences are depleted, and how to build community with other Fat Activists. The format will be a facilitated session, with a guiding format and questions. All bodies are welcome, and discussion of all kinds of body positivity are absolutely welcome!
