For the first time ever, this year's Global South Women's Forum is taking place virtually! Join us mid-December for five exciting days of feminist conversations online!Register
POSSIBLE FUTURES curates spaces to build understanding and solidarity across the Global South. We hold space for unseen, unheard narratives to emerge and environments for overarching Global South narratives to emerge as legitimate alternatives to the Global North's dominant, re-colonising ideas of "sustainable development" and "planetary regeneration".
Maria Clara Parente (Performer - This Is Not The Truth)
POSSIBLE FUTURES is an endeavour that aims to make visible the South's stories and narratives of a history of colonisation and oppression, and formulate regenerative narratives relevant in the South's complex, diverse contexts and cultures. In holding space for these stories to emerge, we build our way through the generations towards planetary regeneration. This session will be a continuation of POSSIBLE FUTURES dialogues, focussing on the topic of intergenerational work required in bringing about the pluriverse of regeneration.
We will hold a panel discussion, followed by an artist feature, and then self-facilitated break-out rooms, before a collective reflection and hosts' reflection, ending with a final artist feature. To capture discussions in breakout rooms, we will be encouraging participants to summarise discussion points within a co-created Mural.
The aim of this dialogue is to build understanding and solidarity across the Global South - to hold space for unseen, unheard narratives - that have been held back by centuries - to emerge. We seek to create space for overarching Global South narratives to emerge as legitimate alternatives to the Global North's dominant, re-colonising ideas of 'sustainable development' and 'planetary regeneration'.
