The Healing Solidarity Collective is a space to collective resource ourselves in healing solidarity. This is a space to take forward the conversations begun with the first Healing Solidarity Conference in September 2018, and to gather around the work of healing the sector both from injustice in our practice and the working practices that overwhelm and exhaust us, to support each other as peers, sharing our initiatives and ideas. This is a place to meet people, share your thoughts, questions and reflections and also where new events will be held and shared. More about the original conference can be found a www.healingsolidarity.org.
This likely isn’t your first attempt to create change in the sector or support yourself in your practice. You might have run into some frustrating experiences like finding things don’t seem to change no matter how hard you try and bring attention to injustice. Or you might have been trying to support yourself and the people around you but find that care is actively discouraged in your workplace, and that repeated burnout and value drift are pervasive in your organisation.
This Collective is here to support you in the practice of doing things differently, a place to practice supporting one another and sharing our challenges, trying new approaches to create change and of integrating wellbeing and impact to support one another and create cultures of collective care so that we can support ourselves to keep trying to shift things over time.
