ULB6 is a debriefing bundle that offers two tools for the journey ahead beyond the course: a compass grounded on the movement towards sobriety, maturity, discernment and responsibility and some instructions on how to walk a tightrope with honesty, humility, humour and hyper-self-reflexivity. By this point, most participants report seeing things differently, feeling better equipped to navigate complexities, uncertainties, and complicities and being more motivated to do difficult work, including the work of composting shit and the work of building relationships grounded on trust, respect, reciprocity, consent and accountability.

Sensing Harm by Design

Course Website: https://courses.advaya.life/sensing-harm-by-design | Sensing Harm by Design, by the Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures Collective, is a six-week course designed to support participants to activate dispositions that can expand their capacity to navigate increasing volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) and to hold space for what is difficult and painful without feeling overwhelmed, immobilised or demanding quick fixes or rescue from discomfort. This course is for those who want to be better equipped to navigate the times we live in; to learn how to build different relationships and to build relationships differently, and to weather current and coming storms together without relationships falling apart. Decolonial practice and radical systems change need to begin now—and this starts with ourselves. The course runs from 26 June to 31 July, on Mondays, 5–7pm UK.

Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures #

GTDF are a trans-disciplinary collective of researchers, artists, educators, students & Indigenous knowledge keepers. Their collaborative practices bring together concerns related to racism, colonialism, unsustainability, climate change, biodiversity loss, economic instability, mental health crises, & intensifications of social & ecological violence. The focus of the work is on building stamina, capacity & dispositions for painful work (self-and world-unmaking) through artistic & educational experiments that can help us to hold space for difficult conversations.
