About the event
'a world where many worlds fit' (Zapatistas)
'(That) before the hegemonic imposition of the West as the ideal, the world was many centres of power and knowledge, each suited to the needs of their respective communities.' (Mungwini)
'Pluriversality is not cultural relativism, but several cosmologies connected today in a power differential. That power differential is the logic of coloniality covered up by the narrative of modernity.' (Mignolo)
with Community-Centred Knowledge
10am: Doors OPEN
To greet, meet & rest our feet, refresh ourselves, massage shoulders, hands and feet.
11-1: Pluriverse - What if we did not meet each other through the mind of the coloniser? Can you feel the pluriverse? thru heart, hands, eyes, ears, skin & nose. re-birthing, breathing, growing, heartache, agonies, alone-ness, deaths, life, re-born.
