Online Listening Post – Covid-19
March 31 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
We invite you to participate in an Online Listening Post to explore the experience of the COVID-19 pandemic. Listening Posts are opportunities for participants to think about the society they are part of. The group discussion is unstructured – no agenda is set or issue identified beforehand. Any themes that emerge are the work of participants taking up their citizen roles. The concept of a Listening Post is based on certain propositions: that people may with some encouragement take up a reflective citizen role, mobilising their observing ego. That the dynamics of the group may be such that even a small group may nevertheless act as if it is a microcosm of the large group that is society. So that, the themes that emerge through associative dialogue may legitimately be analysed for their societal content.
The event is for GRA members and guests who are interested in exploring and processing their pre-occupations and experience of the COVID-19 pandemic, to gain a better understanding of the social experience, the preoccupations and experiences of all as citizens.
