Welcome to our first digital workshop for anarchist educators on zine-making!

In collaboration with Gata Negra, we’ll learn how to create zines as educational tools. In this workshop, based on various classical children’s books about anarchy, we will learn how to make a zine focused on anarchy for educators.

The workshop is open for individuals and it is also fine to come as a group. However you wish to come, this is a great way to meet other anarchist educators and create an easy zine that can be used in your learning spaces. This is just a try-out, and we are excited to learn how to do this kind of event with all of you.

No previous knowledge is required, curiosity and interest is enough! Not sure if you are enough of an educator for this workshop? You are! We would love to see you with us, whatever your experience is.

The format of the workshop will be a short presentation by Gata Negra, highlighting the most important components and the process of creation. During the rest of the workshop, we’ll be working in breakout rooms in your self-chosen groups trying out various zine making processes.

And then… just have fun!

Joyful Resistance, August 6

Online event, Friday, August 6, 2021. Times for English-speaking group: 4 PM UCT (5 PM BST / 6 PM CEST / 12 PM EDT). Times for Spanish-speaking group: 10 PM UCT (5 PM CDT / 6 PM Chile / 12 AM CEST)

Creating a community to share experiences and ideas is a useful approach to develop ourselves as educators, but we also need each other to take care of ourselves.

Mutual care, as the emotional part of mutual aid, is an essential part of our survival and resistance in neoliberal educational environments. We’d like to invite all of you to our monthly Joyful Resistance group, where we are creating a safe space of mutual support to endure our struggles and create resistance networks together. Here, we’ll have a safe space to meet others, criticize safely, open up, give and receive support, and keep on our educational work together.

Our goal is to develop self-directed groups where we can create our own structures, topics and agendas.

If you’d like to join us for the first time, please register here https://www.eventbrite.com/…/joyful-resistance…

If you have participated in former meetings, you are free to use the same Zoom link you got. We are looking forward to seeing you!
