“Deconstructing Legalize” is a found poetry workshop that examines contracts and codes imposed upon us by bureaucratic systems, and reconstructs the language to reclaim our personal histories. The nuances of our health, relationships, advocacy, creativity and identities are often dismantled through the use of legalese, such as rendering the brutality of divorce to capitalistic grievances, or the reducing the declaration of our gender identity to medical records and non-disclosure agreements.

During this workshop, attendees take documents that have undermined significant events in their lives, and reconstruct the jargon into empowering and personalized pieces of writing. They are invited to do so through a physical process of cutting and reconstructing texts.
