This podcast, organised by Alternative Fictions in conjunction with the Newington Green Meeting House, focuses on allyship and solidarity.
What is solidarity? Who is an ally? Where do these ideas come together, and do we all understand them the same way? Drawing from examples within recent activist movements, this workshop will explore how we come together from different perspectives and experiences to build a better world for everyone, fighting for each other’s rights and better understanding the needs of the very people affected by these issues. From hashtags to saviour complexes, together we will unpick motivations and approaches behind activism and explore ways of building practices that support people on the terms they need, rather than activism based solely on good intentions.
