In June 2023, The Pedagogies for Social Justice project held its first Festival of Decolonial Learning. This three-day public event was co-created to bring people together to learn about how we build decolonial and anti-racist atmospheres in our learning and teaching spaces. Each day featured a series of interactive workshops and keynotes, held by activists, academics, students and community groups from across the UK, and colonially known Australia and Canada.
The Festival programme can be viewed here.
We commissioned independent artist, Raquel Durán, to illustrate the conversations, ideas and connections that happened across the three days. Swipe the gallery below to view:
