Putting the Culture into Permaculture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Although "culture" is in the word permaculture, this powerful resource is often overlooked and underutilized in our movement. By deepening our understanding of and relationship to culture, we can strengthen our connection to ourselves, build authentic relationships across differences, and create the conditions for lasting ecological and social transformation.

In this workshop, we will use participatory tools and techniques including listening exchanges,Theatre of the Oppressed, Story Circles and Sociometric Mapping to explore themes of loss of culture, (de)colonization, liberation, healing and transformation.

*Please bring an object that represents your culture
