Solidarity Starter - 'Exploring Solidarity'
In activism the word solidarity gets thrown around a lot: “we stand in solidarity with the Global South”, “we are in solidarity with the Working Class”, etc. - but what does that really mean?!? Well, we better find out!

About the Event
We constantly claim to be acting in solidarity during our work but what does being in solidarity even mean?
How can we ensure we are actually working to raise up our collective struggle, and not simply replicating the skewed power dynamics of our world?
Based on the liberating education work of Paulo Freire and by looking at, and contrasting, our own and others ideas and experiences, we will explore together the ever so used and misused concept of solidarity and work to build a basic working definition of solidarity.
It won’t be perfect, no definition can be, but it's a start and most importantly it's ‘our’ start on this journey of relearning the lost art of true solidarity - come get involved!
