  • Mapping Whiteness

    June 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Hosted by the School of Otherness

    At this event we will deconstruct whiteness through personal cartography. Facilitators will set whiteness in various historical contexts and introduce different mapping techniques. We will then create maps, diagramming the ways in which we participate in and benefit from whiteness. A group discussion of the maps created will follow. No artistic or cartographic experience required, except a willingness to draw. Supplies will be provided.

Everyone will get 5-10 prints to take home. No experience necessary. Everyone will learn the basics of letterpress operation and tools for connecting to our higher power.

    Using AF3IRM’s School of Youth Activism (SOYA) as a vehicle, we explore what collective care means as opposed to self-care. We as transnational feminists believe that practicing self-care is not enough, as it does not address structural oppression that adds to our stress and trauma both as individuals and marginalized communities.
