We are glad to start our Intersectional Workshop series with “Care Feminism and Transindigenous Knowledge” workshop held by Joulia Strauss and Elke Krasny.
What does it mean to live in an Infected Planet? How one can learn to think care at all scales, from the microbial to the planetary, from the personal to the political? How can we embrace self care, singing Ancient Greek hymns and dance as a political activism? During this two-day workshop, we will focus on ecofeminism, caring, maintenance as resistance.
