Who Were We? Who Are We Now? An exploration of Large Group Identity and Societal Conflict (online event)
March 8 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$50 – $300
Wednesday 8th March 2023 – Lecture: ‘Chosen Trauma, Hot Spots and Linking Objects’
This will be a lecture format and open to all.
Wednesday 15th, 22nd & 29th March 2023 – Workshops: ‘Large Group Identity in One’s Own Life’
A series of 3 workshops following the lecture offering an opportunity for members to reflect in small groups on the intertwining of their own personal identities with large group identity. This will provide an opportunity to explore how large group identity is already a part of one’s life, perhaps in ways we don’t realize. This, in turn, becomes a grounding from which to understand how large group identity operates at a societal level.
Note that attendance at workshops requires attendance at the lecture.
