In this workshop we'll talk about the often feminized and undervalued work of caregiving, and the ways people and communities can create care webs for disability, chronic illness and mental health needs. We'll talk about the power dynamics of giving and receiving care, what allows us to ask for and give care well, and look at models for care collectives. Participants will leave with tools and roadmaps for how to sustainably create collective care outside of state and medical systems.
