You’ve got until 24 February 2020 to send us your ideas if you would like to contribute to next year’s International Resilience Revolution Conference. You might not have presented at a conference before, you might not even have been to a conference before, but please don’t be shy, we REALLY want to hear from you!
Read through the conference themes and see if they apply to what you’re doing.
- Are you doing resilience research or practice with an activist twist?
- Have you reclaimed resilience-based approaches to make them relevant to your own challenging context, for example, as a local community, youth collective or service user group?
- Have you got some exciting new theoretical ideas on resilience that take us to a higher plain?
- Are you putting revolutionary resilience ideas into practice in a school setting or across a whole town?
- Could you be challenging dominant constructions of resilience?
- Are you looking beyond the individual and applying resilience approaches across systems?
We are interested in hearing about research and practice that relates to any of the above in relation to any context – e.g. social, world environmental, galactic… If any of these apply, you might want to start thinking about possible contributions, whether that be: a workshop, talk, performance piece, installation, poster, or something that we just haven’t quite thought of yet. Resilience activism through the medium of interpretive dance? Who knows what else might come our way once we see the proposals.
You have until 24 February 2020 to send us your ideas. We are particularly keen to highlight work that has been thoroughly co-produced between different partners (e.g., young people, academics, practitioners). We are also proactively seeking to include contributions from people who face additional barriers to participation, including those who identify as being from an under-represented community, i.e. from an ethnic minority, working-class, LGBTQ+, neurodiverse, or those with a long-term illness or disability. We will have some bursaries for people on a low income, including communities, youth and students who are doing important work that needs sharing.
