What is the Decolonize Un-Conference?
The Decolonize Un-Conference is a free space for advocates and activists of the global majority to (un)learn, heal, and cultivate community through acknowledging the personal, local, and national impacts of colonization. Topics vary from city to city, and have included race, anti-blackness, anti-indigeneity, the gender binary, art as activism, relationship to land and animals, food, body image, mental health, navigating academia, language, and spirituality.
The un-conference is currently in English only. We are hoping to be able to offer un-conferences in Spanish and other languages in the future.
