Power Beyond Privilege
Date(s) - 20/08/2014
The first meeting of this self-led course on power and privilege in our lives – how we experience power and privilege and how we can subvert them together.
This first meeting will be a reading group, we will then meet once a month to either discuss readings, or watch a film, or go to an exhibition or guided walk. Once every three months we’ll have a day-long workshop. More info:http://
The first meeting is happening on Wednesday 20th August 7pm 25 Colonnade, WC1N 1JA. The meeting will consist of two main discussions: one on activist fatigue (wondering what the point of activism is and how we can make our activism in this group useful); and one on specific forms of privilege and power. Before the meeting we will read the following texts:
1) Give up activism: http://www.eco-action.org/
2) Why I don’t want to talk about race: http://goodmenproject.com/
3) Why I want to talk about race, and why you should too: http://
4) Things I’m expected to do for cis people: http://
NOTE: This looks like a lot, but the last three texts are REALLY SHORT! Estimated reading time for all four texts: 45 mins.
Location change! – 25 Colonnade, WC1N 1JA
