The States of Change Learning Festival, 1-19 June
Our friends at States of Change have a fascinating series of events coming up:
https://states-of-change.org/stories/welcome-to-our-learning-festivalOver three weeks in June, we want to create a space to meet, to explore ideas, to share tactics and frameworks, and to build a shared sense of what our role ought to be over these coming months and years. We come together in a spirit of solidarity, humility, defiance, and determination. And while we recognise this moment is deadly serious, we nonetheless want to bring a sense of playful curiosity that is befitting a festival.
We have created three ‘stages’ for you to explore: for the dreamers, the Where are we going? stage; for the planners, the What needs to be in place? stage; and for the pragmatists and doers, the How do we get there? stage. We also have a Community Hub to help people connect with each other on a personal level, whether in your local area or across the world.
Whatever path you choose, I recommend starting your journey with award-winning author Tyson Yunkaporta, bringing us a powerful Indigenous perspective for our opening event.
Our festival is about paying attention to practice, about experimenting in online convening and connecting, about being emergent to context and needs, and creating space for reflection.
