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 we will focus on a brilliant book exploring marginalised experiences. The club meet on the final Thursday of the month and sessions will be 2 hours long to create space for lengthier discussions and action point check in and outs at the start and end of each session.
We would also like to build community and action around this group - so encourage people to come down in person if they can. We intend to maintain a long term, consistent space for people to take personal responsibility and communal accountability for their allyship 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 us.
HOW THE GROUP WORKS:
We’ll be meeting in person and online. Both digital and IRL spaces will be open 10 minutes in advance to arrive for a prompt kick off. Links to online meeting 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.
The space will be facilitated. 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.
When? Last Thursday of every month, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
