Holding Space Part 1: Strategies for Anti Oppressive Facilitation

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

How can facilitators hold space in ways that are truly anti-oppressive? Explore strategies for facilitation that center the needs of Black, Brown and Indigenous people, disabled people, LGBTQ+ folks, survivors and more. We'll examine how various approaches and activities can build solidarity and safety in group settings. We'll deepen our existing skills and leave with shiny, effective new tools for liberatory facilitation. This is part one of a two-part series.
