rongin shagor/রঙিন সাগর | Critical Collective Practices | a lecture presentation anchored by Aroh Akunth

November 11, 2022 18:00 AM - 20:00

In societies that weaponize the alienation of individuals for economic gains, the idea of ​​collectives should offer respite, and alternatives. Though historically these queer organizations have defined affinity to particular kinds of peoples and politics, delegitimization of pro-people ideologies en mass, including workers' rights has led to the role of collectives gaining renewed importance in a unipolar world. It is in their definition-defying formations that collectives have been embodied by various peoples, shaped critical thought, cross-pollinated different kinds of knowledges, and managed to sustain where larger mobilizations failed: fill in gaps created by structures. We invite you to think with us about how one can connect their individual practices to larger communities, what could be the pedagogy of collective practices, and how to sustain communities that are critical and generative.

The lecture presentation will be anchored by Aroh Akunth.

Joined by: Ming Poon, Priyadharsini (The Blue Club) , Daddypuss Rex

Registration Process: Open to all

Free Entry!
