Do you struggle to be heard in a meeting? Have you noticed that sometimes you can’t remember the outcome of a debate? We need good tools to have good discussions leading to good outcomes – come and develop some skills and tools to express yourself, hear others, and arrive at consensus together! We’ll practice some hand signals that help us communicate in another dimension and use some different methods to make decisions.
about the facilitator
Peter Haresnape is a co-founder of the Cahoots festival. He serves Toronto United Mennonite church as a pastor and is studying theology at Conrad Grebel University College. He learned a lot of group discussion practices in anarchist circles in the UK and is excited to practice them in Turtle Island.
The Canadian public are again learning the truth about the Residential School System, but few are joining the dots to see how supporting Indigenous land defence and sovereignty movements like 1492 Landback Lane is a concrete response to the genocidal violence of the Residential School System – a legacy that all people on these lands called Canada must respond to.
Guiding us through our thinking and action is Peter Haresnape (he/him), member of Christian Peacemaker Teams (Turtle Island Solidarity Network), Cahoots festival organizer, currently a student and pastor of Toronto United Mennonite Church
