About this Event
New Models is a lecture series that invites practitioners from different disciplines to discuss how their work can change the models around which society is organised. These conversations will address how we can shift power structures, socio-economic forces and structural inequalities present in society today to give us new tools to rethink the world around us.
For this series, Pride of Arabia wants to put forward new models for care. In the new COVID19 paradigm, what does it mean to have or give community care? How do precarious communities continue to mobilise and create support – what are the politics of care and how have our needs and values changed through the loss of some spaces and the creation of new ones? Join us for a conversation where together, we will be re-identifying our needs and values, while exploring new ways of expressing care.
Pride of Arabia is a QTPOC space that provides access to learning and a social support network. We centre queer, Arabic-speaking POC diaspora and migrants who are navigating their identities and exploring the new possibilities of alt-organising through community.
