Rest as Resistance
February 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office (ARCDO) invites students, staff, faculty at the University of Toronto to join us for a facilitated space of dialogue and movement for Black community at U of T.
We have been deeply impacted by the last three years, and rather than fighting systems of oppression or anti-blackness with our words, I invite participants to engage with practices that root ourselves in our right to rest and engage in community care. The session will start off with a gentle meditation and movement. This session is for Black participants to engage with the practice of being, rather than consistently doing, an invitation to reframing cultures of overworking and productivity. This session is informed by the work of Tricia Hersey – rest as resistance.
