Event description

Description

ReThink is an event series from the New Narrative focused on facilitated discussions about topics that don’t often get openly addressed; everything from sex, money, religion, to community-building, personal identity, and self-worth. The goal is to create an affirming space for discussion so all of us can operate with more knowledge, language, and solidarity as we tackle the difficult aspects of our lives.

This month we’re going to discuss Confronting Privilege

We live in a stratified society where some of us were born into situations that afforded us health, happiness, education, and safety. Others of us were not so lucky and might not have had as ready access to even the most basic human needs that others took for granted. This stratification can have long last effects on the distribution of wealth and the social safety of large groups of people. How do we confront privilege in our world and create a conversation around the effects it has? How do we address our own privilege (or lack thereof) in how we show up in the world? What do we stand to gain or lose by having this conversation?

ReThink follows a model similar to a “World Cafe.” Each event will feature a set of discussion tables with designated facilitators. The facilitators will guide the table through different discussion questions pertaining to the main topic. Attendees will split up and rotate around, spending approximately 20 minutes at each table, before rotating to the next one.

The hope is that by moving around and sharing ideas, a richer level of conversation and new connections will emerge. We’ll leave time at the end of the session to share thoughts, insights and potential next steps with the larger group too.

The event is open to the public but advance registration is greatly appreciated. Some of the discussions will be on sensitive topics and might not be appropriate for everybody. We ask that you exercise maturity and open-mindedness should you attend a ReThink event.
