Our theme this year is “Centering Ourselves: Cultivating Personal and Community Growth" with the intent of dismantling all forms of oppression on a foundation of love. We believe this necessitates building and nourishing intimate connections with ourselves and members of our various communities. With this in mind, we hope to make room for community growth and accountability so that we may recenter our work with the intention of sustaining ourselves and each other. We acknowledge and challenge the systems that want us to burn out, and we respond with a renewed sense of self and community healing because we know that it is necessary for lasting growth. We especially want to build this foundation for those in our community who are just beginning to engage in this process of understanding and dismantling oppression.
The workshops will be taking place on Saturday afternoon (November 17) and they will be split up into two 1-hour blocks (session 1 and session 2). You can choose to host your workshop for one session or both – it's up to you. The intent of the workshops is to share community knowledge and experiences, to create spaces for communities that need them, and to connect with one another at the retreat. We are hoping to have workshops that align with our theme of "Centering Ourselves: Cultivating Personal and Community Growth", but any workshops that center LGBTQIA+ identities/experiences are welcome! Workshops can also embody all forms of self care – get creative!
