Reading Group
2019-09-16 by pirate

Starting September 2019 in Rijeka

β€œWe have to consciously study how to be tender with each other until it becomes a habit.” – Audre Lorde

In an informal gathering, we will read together texts that were written in the context of past & present pirate care practices or that are important resources for reflecting on the ethcis and politics of civil disobedience, custodianship and self-care as political self-defence. Newcomers and drop-ins are welcome to join at any point.

No booking is required and no previous knowledge is necessary. Most texts will be in English and they will be made available in advance of our meetings. Read them if you can, but equally, do come along even if you haven’t had the chance, as we will read out loud some extracts together at each meeting. The reading group will be a safe space for asking questions at any level and reflecting on ideas. All texts will be prepared for annotations at our website.

Venue: Omladinski kulturni centar Palach / Youth Cultural Centre Palach (KruΕΎna 8, Rijeka: osm, gmap)
