Following the first session of What We Don't Know (Embodied Social Justice - shared collaborative learning), Deborah and Sue are offering to hold a next step session on 12th September, 5-7 BST.
In the first session Deborah and Sue shared a little about what touched them during their attendance in the Embodied Social Justice Programme, held by The Embody Lab:
"Together we all looked at what it might mean for us as teachers to keep educating ourselves in subjects such as gender, equality, ability, geography, race, sexuality. Among other things that then came up was white centredness and discomfort around power, through gender, skin colour, body ability and more - and the need and desire for many of us to become more aware and conscious of these subjects. Do I make it sound worthy and dull? It was the opposite!"
How vulnerable any of us might feel, and how important justice is and how much there is to learn. How can we learn together, supporting and being supported as we go, about things that matter to us? It was a tender and friendly first step.
Any member of ICMTA is welcome. There is no fee, although, if you feel able and want to, a contribution to the ICMTA's Diversity Scholarship fund would be welcomed, to help support student teachers who might otherwise to be able to train.
Non Members are welcome too. (Teachers and teachers-in-training of these schools only: 5Rhythms, Azul, freedomDANCE, Movement Medicine, Open Floor and Soul Motion). We'd ask you to make a payment of Euros 15+ to join this merry band of learning and sharing, which would go into the Scholarship fund.
Of course if cost were prohibitive - well, don't let it be. Let Lina know, and you won't be turned away. We'd like you and your financial contribution. But if we have to choose, we choose you. You're wanted and needed, if we're going to collectively make a difference.
To make a contribution, please use firstname.lastname@example.org through PayPal, or contact Lina for details to make a bank transfer.
