Build A Better Future Book Club with Girl Gang MCR

Date: Last Thursday of every month
Location: Yellow Room / Co-working, Whitworth Locke

Book via eventbrite.

Stimulus, discussion, co-learning and action to create a more equitable world for all.

We hope this group will provide a space and build a community for education, discussion and reflection. Each month will focus on a brilliant book exploring marginalised experiences. The club will meet on the final Thursday of the month with 2 hour long sessions to create space for lengthier discussions and so we can check in and outs of each session. We would also like to build community and action around this group - so we encourage people to come down in person if they can (with optional pre- meal or post drink).

We intend to maintain a long term, consistent space for people to take personal responsibility and communal accountability for their ally ship and coalition learning, creating a space for reflection, discussion and to hear from other voices. The group is always open to new members, or returning ones, so we’d love for you to join.

HOW THE GROUP WORKS: We’ll be meeting in person and online. Both digital and IRL spaces will be open 10 minutes in advance for participants to arrive for a prompt kick off. Links to online meetings will be sent in advance of the session. Our sessions will involve specific prompts and small group discussions (as well as online in virtual break-out rooms). Digital attendees will be in groups together and in person attendees will be in groups together. Though some of our facilitators may have lived experience, this is a space for communal learning and structured discussion rather than a teaching space- the ‘teacher” will always be the author of the material.
