    Activity Date: Monday, May 2, 2022 - 16:00 UTC
    Duration: 90 min
    Brief Description:

    Beginning with an honest conversation between four people working in - and struggling with - the international level, and then opening out to include the others present, this session will look at the in-between spaces of 'the national, international or global' and ask:
    Given that international or global spaces are inherently coopted by the elite and given that we tend to learn that these spaces are more important than the real spaces we actually live in, what attitudes and practices support us to stay in the struggle without becoming a mirror image of the system of domination we are opposing?
    How do we reach out to connect our many places, our many struggles, so that we can collectively disentangle ourselves from systems of domination?

    How do we resist and subvert colonial cultural habits and assumptions when we're working in the more than local - and how do we tap into and create a new culture of connection in that space?
