Study circle with Nyamusi Nyambok
The purpose of the circle is to interpret these issues in relation to their practicality in real life situations. This could be achieved through understanding the characters by reading different chapters of the book and then analysing them during our discussions!
What we take home from this study circle are tools to empower us to navigate those challenges addressed in the book and maybe find solutions for related issues in our own lives. The discussions will be oriented towards building a community that allows for capacity building, sustainability, good mental health and wellness within our surroundings. The circle’s discussions and workshops can be re-applied in different capacities in society, for instance within our professional or work spaces or any social setting.
The book tackles intersectionality, intercultural dynamics, socio-political, socio-economic and socio-cultural aspects which can be reflected through our different positions in society. Migration, assimilation and integration are also other concepts the book highlights and we do hope that after the study circle we can be able to question what position we partake in enabling the societal status quo or advocating for social change. Furthermore, get tools for navigating cultural sensitivity and inclusion.
The study circle participants come from different walks of life. Arguably, these different backgrounds are a resource for all of us who are the participants and our experiential expertise can be used as an educative point of departure for all of us.
The study circle settings depart from an equal standing position where equality and respect are the pillars that guide us. All participants and the circle leader are equal and there is no point of authority between the leader and the participants. However, the leader takes a role in managing the attendance list and facilitating the event.
The study circle takes place every second week between the 6th of April and the 15th of June. The number of participants are limited to 25 persons. The participators can borrow a copy of the book from the library, after recieving a booking confirmation.
