This workshop will explore what it means to make “good trouble.” Making "good trouble", as described by Civil Rights Leader and Congressman John Lewis is doing “something out of the ordinary,” to make “a way out of no way.” As per Flint and Toledo (2021): "Troubling is about how we relate as we live and become together in the world." Together, we will use the concept of 'troubling' as a framework that notices and names injustices. We will also consider how we can create new ways of relating to one another in order to coexist in a good way. By the end of this session, participants will identify practical strategies for making "good trouble." For online sessions, please note that the Zoom link will be provided the day before the start of the workshop.
