Healing Solidarity, the weekend session is for people who care deeply about injustice and inequality in the world but hold questions about our current approaches to international development and addressing global inequality.
On this weekend (24-25 November) we want to create a space to support ourselves in the pursuit of doing things differently and allowing new approaches to solidarity to emerge. So the weekend event will be part retreat, part reflection & visioning space.
Because solidarity requires us to be in a more equitable relationship with each other it requires us to offer ourselves care and attention even as we offer it to others.
The session will consist of some self-reflection about shifts we might personally want to make, conversations to help envision what might be possible in our spaces and organisations, strategising about what it means to challenge the status quo within organisations and systems accompanied by a range of nourishing practices to support us both during the weekend and that we can take away and support ourselves in our work.
WHO IS THIS FOR? People working in international development spaces longing to do things differently.
INTENTION: To bring us together to reflect, ask questions & support one another, build a culture of collective care, share ideas and support for different ways of working, get to know one another and find ways to do things differently.
ADDRESSING: The sense of being alone and exhausted in having big questions around how you work and at the same time struggling to find spaces to explore what could be different and how to challenge the status quo.
Time and investment: 24 & 25 November 2018. 9-5 both days. £225 includes food (simple breakfast, lunch and snacks both days) but not accommodation. Central London venue, 42 Acres Shoreditch.
