TLS Session 1: Goals
15 Octubre, 2020
1:30 pm—3:00 pm

This session will ground our community of practice, and identify participants’ goals and interests. It will also offer models for how participants can ground public memory projects of their own that seek to activate history and memory for justice-centered movements and mutual aid in the current moment. Topics will include: locating yourself and your history in relation to systemic power and histories of liberation and historical harm; bringing transformative justice approaches to public memory projects; and creating reciprocal relationships among mentors and partners for co-creation and knowledge sharing.

This session is free and open to the public.

TLS Session 2: Planning
29 Octubre, 2020
1:30 pm—3:00 pm

In the spirit of our TLS shared values radical of honesty and openness, this week’s meeting will be a planning session where core group members and the larger HAL network will collaboratively envision an upcoming workshop on “mutual aid storytelling.” TLS is an ongoing and evolving process of collectively creating a learning community and we want to make that in-process aspect visible to everyone who participates. Join us to see what horizontal and sustainable workshop development can look like and gather tools and resources for your own efforts.

This session is free and open to the public.

TLS Session 3: Mutual Aid Storytelling
12 Noviembre, 2020
1:30 pm—3:00 pm

This session will explore ways that sharing stories — whether individual, community, or broader structural histories — supports ongoing mutual aid and organizing efforts. Led by organizers of mutual aid in cities from Newark to Miami to Milwaukee, the workshop will explore what mutual aid is and how it’s different from charity or social service; how story sharing is central to sustaining and growing mutual aid; who storytelling is for and how history/memory can support mutual aid; and what roles people from different subject positions (students, organizers, faculty, local residents) can play. It will explore “mutual aid storytelling” as a practice for this moment and offer ways to ground learning spaces in holistic listening and healing practices.

Free and open to the public.

TLS Session 4: Helpful Jellyfish
03 Diciembre, 2020
1:30 pm—3:00 pm

This session will build on our growing exploration of the role of storytelling in mutual aid and other non-hierarchical organizing efforts. We will be joined by Tara Taylor of the mutual aid project Helpful Jellyfish based in Philadelphia who will help ground us in the slow work of shifting our deeply embedded ideas of what our own story is and what it can be. Together we will reflect on how to challenge “trauma porn” narratives, re-work our stories to have real material change in our lives, and better connect to each other through our shared experiences.

Free and open to the public.

TLS Session 5: TBD
17 Diciembre, 2020
1:30 pm—3:00 pm
