Live Archive: Abolitionist Kinaesthetics


A guided meditation, picnic and workshop with June Yuen Ting as part of Artist Archive.

How can movement practice be a method through which we body forth a world without prison and police? Abolitionist Kinaesthetics is a movement research that began with a desire to learn and practice collective care, mutual aid, community accountability and transformative justice — to build relationships that make prison and police obsolete. June Yuen Ting invites you to experience this work anew through a meditation room, an abolitionist picnic and a movement workshop.


  • 11am – 4pm: Guided Meditation – Embodying Transformative Justice. An installation in the Research Studio.
  • 12 – 1.30pm: Community Picnic – Collective Imagination as Abolitionist Praxis. In the Courtyard.
  • 1.30 – 3.30pm: Movement Workshop – Beyond the Box with Jeremy Guyton. In the Roof Studio.
