COUNTERSPACE EVENTS

UPCOMING

15/10/20 MONTHLY DECOLONIAL LAB ONLINE – PARADIGM II. The Decolonial Lab by Counterspace is a non-hierarchical grassroots forum experience rooted in Critical Pedagogy, holding space for: An in-depth theoretical introduction to the concept of decoloniality + contemporary decolonial practices with practical cases. And a collective exploration of the subject + a new paradigm discussing what does practically mean to decolonise ourselves and our world in relation to absolutely any topic. Normally booked as live Decolonial Lab/s of bespoke length by groups, this particular online Decolonial Lab is happening once a month in cycles of 7 (which can be joined any time) for interested individuals without geographical restrictions. As a grassroots international forum, this lab is addressed to people from all walks of life and locations ready to build new pools of new collective knowledge in circulation. Early bookings recommended since capacity is limited to allow the collective conversation. Hosted by Cristina Morales, Paradigm II will be happening on 15/10/20 7.30-9.30pm BST. Tickets and further info are now available here.
