Collective well-being in activism

Politics & Care will be facilitating a discussion on collective care and well-being in activism on Sunday 21st August, 2pm to 4pm. maxresdefault

This discussion is part of the third annual convergence of TransHackFeminist that is taking place from 18th to 22nd August 2016 at Studio XX, 4001 rue Berri.

We look forward to opening a safer space, which will then facilitate a discussion on how we can integrate care in our organizing and be accountable to each other so that we avoid dynamics that are damaging to individuals in the group as well the collective. It will be a space to reflect upon practices that can promote well-being of the collective as we fight various oppressions and injustices.

We need to open up spaces for discussion and to think about collective care within our communities if we aspire to cease the reproduction of systemic oppressions and violences that we oppose. Acquiring tools for and actively engaging with ideas about collective well-being and (self)care are powerful ways to create thriving communities. We need to put as much emphasis on “how” we organize as we do on « why » and « what » we do.
