Intersectional Solidarity Network Training Course
1-10 November 2023 | Österfärnebo, Sweden
Bringing international solidarity and intersectionality to practice: experience-based learning and creative methods. This training course invites participants to physically join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors.
Are you a youth worker who is passionate about global justice and international solidarity? Do you want to develop your capacities in working towards social change in your daily work? This training course brings international solidarity and intersectional perspectives to practice through creative methods.
The Swedish network member, PeaceWorks Sweden, together with our partner organisations, is offering a training course on International Solidarity for youth workers. We often meet people in the youth sector who express concerns about the way in which global power structures are reproduced in local settings - as well as in their daily work with young persons. This training course addresses these issues through a systemic approach where international solidarity and intersectionality are brought to practice, through experience-based learning and creative methods. A particular focus is given to Theatre of the Oppressed which invites participants to join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors.
When and where?
The course consists of two course weeks.
TC1: Sweden, 1-10 November 2023 (including two days for travelling).
TC2: 28 February - 8 March 2024 (including two days for travelling). Location TBA.
