Collective Care @ SCPA Basement

What does it mean to build sustainable and holistic communities? How can we care for our whole selves—physical, mental, but also emotional and spiritual—as we organize for social justice?
How can we integrate care in the very way we function as part of our collectives and communities?
How can we transform ourselves and our social relations as we seek to transform the world around us?
How can we avoid reproducing societal oppression in our activist spaces?

Too many activists experience burnout, which in many cases is not directly linked to the amount of work but to *how* we carry out that work, to the collective dynamics and associated frustrations. This workshop will be a space to reflect upon our practices and level to which they are sustainable, and put together ideas and practices that have potential to center people and their well-being as we carry out social justice work.


This event is happening as a part of Sustain’Alive, a weeklong event series centred on activism, society, and the planet.


Montreal, traditional name Tiohtià:ke is located on unceeded Indigenous territory. It has historically been a meeting place for many nations, with the Kanien’kehá:ka as the stewards. We encourage you to reflect on your current and historical relationship to this land.
