Call for Participants: Intersectional Solidarity Network training course

PeaceWorks training

Intersectional Solidarity Network Training Course

20-29 March 2024 | Österfärnebo, Sweden

Bringing international solidarity and intersectionality to practice: experience-based learning and creative methods. This project invites participants to physically join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors.

Are you a youth worker who’s passionate about global justice and international solidarity? Do you want to develop your capacities in working towards social change in your daily work? Intersectional Solidarity Network brings solidarity, social justice and intersectional perspectives to practise through creative methods.

PeaceWorks, together with our partner organisations, are offering two training courses on Intersectional Solidarity for youth workers. We often meet people in the youth sector who express concerns about the way in which global power structures are reproduced in local settings - as well as in their daily work with young persons.

This training course addresses these issues through a systemic approach where international solidarity and intersectionality are brought to practise, through experience-based learning and creative methods. A particular focus is given to Theatre of the Oppressed which invites participants to join the stage, broadening their role from spectators to spect-actors. 

When and where?

The course consists of two course weeks, we are now recruiting for the second course week: 

  • TC2: 20th to the 29th of March 2024 (including two days for travelling).
  • Location: Österfärnebo, Sweden.
