We are taught not to condone violence, yet we do it every day, because how we see and act in the world has been shaped by the violent colonial legacy of how, what and where we learn about the world. This workshop/webinar engages epistemological pluralism to question what we understand as knowledge and who we consider as knowers. We explore the colonial narrative of knowledge, identifying dominant epistemologies as well as non-Western ways of thinking and being that have been excluded and devalued. We then use creative exercises to collectively imagine what epistemological pluralism would look like in our lived realities. This workshop/webinar explores how to move theory into practice and draws connections with our day to day lives and experiences in educational spaces.
