As the continuing process of Clayton Windatt’s performance-based arts evolution, “Freedom Exchange” takes shape as a community engaged workshop. Conformity and oppression are the subtle undertones of modern day society. As people we seek to find ways of categorizing each other and defining our existence. Definitions act as mechanical-like constraints that cast us either into different categories from each other or the samecategory without choice. The generic illusion of equality without classes or division is an entrapment driven by empathy and modern day confusion. No matter how democratic or complicated any categorization attempts to become, can we include all voices or all ways of life? As part of Aanmitaagzi’s “Dances of Resistance” project local multi-artist Clayton Windatt will engage with the audience of the Fair of Alternative Art Sudbury in spontaneous performance art workshops that address the theme of conformity. By collaboratively finding ways of breaking conformity symbolically, we all share wanted similarities unifying people through choice and celebrating each other’s freedoms. Freedom Exchange is also being conducted in partnership with the National Youth Arts Week NYAW. Participating in NYAW gives me additional outreach for my events as well as states the absolute importance of engaging in multi-generational activities that help the powers of awesomeness!!!
