Making Visible the Politics of our Work - Creating Practices to Address Injustices
Option to attend both days or a single day.

Vikki Reynolds will be joining us for a two-day workshop aimed at identifying and addressing the effects of unexamined privilege and practice in our work against injustice. By engaging with a critique of the potential for social and environmental harm within popular methods and mindsets, we'll work to develop a praxis that encourages justice both within our workplaces and throughout our lives.

As a guide, here are the areas of focus for each of the two days:

Day 1. Uncovering the Discourse of Suffering
Critiquing the language informing mental health practices to move beyond the focus on "symptoms" and "pathology"
Exploring and resisting the role of "trauma" and the medicalisation of suffering in suppressing the visibility of violence
Revealing and responding to the conditions that sustain oppression, marginalisation, and isolation within our broader community
Introducing conversations around and commitments to addressing power and privilege in our workplaces

Day 2. The Spirit of Solidarity

Examining the spirit of social justice work and the place of spiritual pain in guiding our decisions

Establishing an ethical foundation for justice-doing and reckoning with power, while learning from times of ethical uncertainty

Evolving away from a consumer-product relationship by transforming structures of hierarchy and competition to be more inclusive of all members of community

Building solidarity and collective commitments to justice in our community

An opportunity to participate in a solidarity group, reviewing the moral basis and underlying practices
Day 1.
Day 2.  On Friday 2 June 2017
