Delving into Difference & Accountability

How can Reauthoring Teaching embody the values and practices around difference, race, power and accountability that we believe in? We are learning as we go, and invite your participation. Below are Collab Salons with particular relevance. As follow-up to Narrative Camp, a small group (Akansha Vaswani, Charley Lang, Lynne Rosen & SuEllen Hamkins) met via Zoom to explore further developing inclusive, anti-oppressive practices at our future Reauthoring Teaching gatherings. They sent out a Cultivating Anti-oppressive practices survey to Camp participants.  Several Board members  are also participating (at reduced fee) in B Herring’s Delving into Difference Consultation Group.

Invitation to Brave Space

By Micky ScottBey Jones

Together we will create brave space

Because there is no such thing as a “safe space”

We exist in the real world

We all carry scars and we have all caused wounds.

In this space

We seek to turn down the volume of the outside world,

We amplify voices that fight to be heard elsewhere,

We call each other to more truth and love

We have the right to start somewhere and continue to grow.

We have the responsibility to examine what we think we know.

We will not be perfect.

This space will not be perfect.

It will not always be what we wish it to be

But

It will be our brave space together,

and

We will work on it side by side
