Speaker: Loree Erikson
Sunday 12. November, 11:00 – 12:15
Drawing on nearly 20 years of organizing care collectives to meet my daily needs (i.e. getting into bed, going to the bathroom, getting into/out of fabulous outfits, taking care of my cat, sorting student papers, cooking together, organizing sparkly things) I will share some of the knowledge generated in countless moments of enacting care from a disability justice perspective. What does interdependence look like on a daily basis? How does embodying a framework of shared vulnerability, sites of shame as sites of resistance and radical access transform our understanding and lived materiality of bodies, and care? How do we show up for each other and take care of each other? What are the practical considerations to make a collective work for the long term? What are some limits of collective care?
