We might value democracy, but what does this actually look like in our lives? Why? And how do we embed this value in our actions? 

Come learn about and unpack ‘democracy’ through hands-on practice with Lana. Join in the fun and engaging online activities of doing some physical democracy games and reflect on the theory, meaning and practice of doing democracy within everyday activist contexts.

This is a thoughtful and playful way to learn some important approaches to DOING democracy.

Take away your learnings to put to use in your community groups, work places, share houses, and activist groups and spaces.

What will we cover?

Together during the class we will:

  • Unpack the theory, strengths and challenges of democracy. 
  • Undertake some activities to help us reflect and learn new democratic processes while still hearing the voices of those under-represented or excluded within our activist spaces. 
  • This workshop is made up of 25% fun, 25% democracy games and 25% democracy theory and 25% fabulous people.

    What will you need?

    Bring your open heart and curious mind.

    Please note that the facilitator is hearing impaired and lip reads as part of her communication style, so it would be preferable to have your camera enabled.
