Situated within a collective and care-based praxis, the session challenges the mainstream understandings of “allyship” and dares to imagine an intersectional approach towards a collective future. Healing centred engagement, collaborative design, grassroots interventions and transformative justice are explored as critical elements of radical solidarity.
