At our research report-zine launch Camille Kumar (Imkaan) kindly offered us some questions to help us to interrogate white supremacy in our research that also has implications for our radical social justice activist practices and communities. In this workshop we will focus on understanding how oppression works, the need to value and centre marginalised perspectives and voices, and develop strategies for self-directed learning and tools that we can use in our everyday lives to create supportive and just communities.
Venue: The Common House (Unit 5E Pundersons Gardens, Bethnal Green, London E2 9QG)
Facilitators: Molly Carroll & Kathryn Tulip (Navigate)
There can be enormous challenges in consistently facing and seeking to transform society, which take their toll on us – impacting our relationships, our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing and the effectiveness of our work. To help us stay nourished, creative and inspired to continue this work, we need to value our own health and wellbeing, develop practices that increase our resilience, support each other and create ways of organising together that help us thrive. Through a selection of individual, pair and group reflections and exercises we will explore tools and perspectives which value our wellbeing and sustainability.
Venue: Future Learn/Open University (Room 2a, 1-11 Hawley Cres, Camden Town, London, NW1 8NP)
