About Affirmation Space: Affirmation Space | Love Your Self Love | Minneapolis

José A. Luis and Kat Purcell are hosting space! Join us for a formal exploration of our existing modes of expression (through body, voice, writing), followed by open group explorations. In this sharing session, we arrive individually knowing we will be with others. We endeavor to settle into a song of self, but hold that our songs will not be separated from the chorus of the many. We will draw on themes and mechanisms of somatics, landscapes, Greek tragic chorus, and communal relations.

What to bring:

  • The floor of Affirmation Space is not a barefoot-safe floor. Please bring sneakers, clothing you like to move and sweat in, and layers to accommodate your body’s changing temperature, since sometimes we will be moving a lot and sometimes, we will be moving less.
  • Writing utensils and something to write in, like a personal notebook.
  • Water – we will have some refreshments, but be sure to bring water or a vessel to keep yourself hydrated.
  • Snacks to share, if you are able.

Cost of Attendance: No one turned away for lack of funds. Suggested donation of $25. All proceeds go to support Affirmation Space.

Entrance: For ramp access to Northrup King, go to accessible parking area by Dock 8, which is a couple hundred feet to the right of the main entrance of Northrup King Building (main entrance says “1500” above the doorway). Then use the double doors that have an access button by the sign for Dock 6. This will lead you into the first floor pretty close to the elevator!

Elevators: The elevator is a bit of a walk from studio 332. Feel free to take a break on one of the chairs or benches in the hall! There are signs on the walls with maps.

Seating: Several options are available, including folding chairs, lounges and hammock seats.

Restrooms: Unfortunately, the accessible bathrooms are a bit far from studio 332, over by the elevators, and they are gendered. The restrooms closest to the studio have two steps up for entry and are also gender segregated.

Parking: Free onsite parking.

COVID Protocol: We highly encourage you to take a COVID test before attending this session. If you are experiencing COVID-like symptoms or have recently been exposed to a confirmed COVID positive case, please do not attend. Session facilitators reserve the right to require masking and testing if the session becomes crowded or local health guidelines and conditions change unexpectedly.
