In The Roots

7-830 pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) June 8th. 2021

An online talk with speakers who are embedded in places of connection, creating sustainable systems & community around ecological concerns.

Networks of Solidarity is a series of four monthly online talks co-organised by artist/organiser Kate O’Shea and writer/researcher Enya Moore from the Just City Collective. The Networks of Solidarity series aims to strengthen transnational networks of solidarity and deepen awareness of place-based struggles that reverberate from Dublin 8 to Gadigal Country (Sydney, Australia).

Guests Alexandra Crosby and Ilaria Vanni (Mapping Edges), Nadeena Dixon (Wiradjuri, Yuin and Gadigal, Dharug-Boorongberrigal clan, and multi-disciplinary artist), Seoidín O’ Sullivan (artist)
Facilitator Dr. Eve Olney (researcher, activist, creative producer and educator)

In the Roots brings together four speakers whose practices are embedded in places of connection, creating sustainable and abundant systems as well as community organisation around ecological concerns. In this shared online space, we will explore the perspectives, knowledge and experience they bring to their practices and communities in the diverse urban contexts.
