COUNTERSPACE DECOLONIAL LAB

The Decolonial Lab is a non-hierarchical and popular / 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.
  • A collective exploration of the subject discussing what does practically mean to decolonise ourselves and our world in relation to absolutely any topic.

That means that although the theoretical body is always the same, the roundtable conversation is always different, which gives the Lab as much continuity, to deepen or broaden the holistic exploration, as desired.

As Decolonial Lab is the first of its kind and it is designed, curated and hosted by Counterspace curator Cristina Morales. With a practice rooted in a creative and decolonial hence holistic approach to activism, she understands healing and the expansion of both personal and community development as a necessarily interdependent exercise on a physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and natural level. This experience is then catalysed connecting psychology, socio-cultural anthropology, politics, spirituality and natural sciences.

Greek semicircular amphitheatre in Syracuse, Italy.

As a service it can be booked by any group from October onwards. Optimal for universities, education centres, community centres, galleries, museums, archives, cultural institutions, cultural organisations, charities and compromised private businesses interested in navigating a collective exploration of decoloniality. At the moment it is available in London, or Worldwide (then streamed online). Live options in other areas can be negotiated. For rates please use the contact form.

If you are an interested individual in any area of the world, a monthly lab online is going to be launched soon. For dates and news please follow Counterspace socials and / or newsletter.
