About the seminar

This day for/about learning together will gather together people who have set up places and practices for knowledge exchange that are organized and formalized differently than the dominant white western educational institutions, mainstream schools and universities. The focus will go to places where education is not separated from all other aspects of life; practices inspired by feminist and decolonial thought, without necessarily claiming to do so. This day aims to create the possibility to share reflection and experiences, tools and strategies, practices and experiments, difficulties and challenges, amongst speakers and participants, between the academic, artistic and activist milieus.

All over the world, places like this have been emerging since many years, places of resistance where friends, family, communities gather, visibly or invisibly. They often situate themselves on the intersection of theory, arts and activism. In her artistic research “bodies of knowledge”, Sarah Vanhee has encountered different places where education comes close to “the practice of freedom” (bell hooks).
