University of Colour Decolonial School

—- Welcome to the University of Colour Decolonial School —–

On this event page you will receive updates on the content of the University of Colour Decolonial School. The University of Colour Decolonial School will take place once a week from the first week of March til the first week of June (see schedule below). The school is open for everyone to attend (students and non students). Make sure you do not forget to subscribe for the Waiting list if you aim to participate (we have reached our capacity at the moment, but some places are expected to become available).

The program aims to:
o Build a larger and more sustainable activist community
o Provide its members a basic understanding of intersectional decolonization

The program is meant for those who are interested in being part of social movements, activism and want to participate in the ongoing global struggle that aims to decolonize not just the University, but also the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist ableist hetero-patriarchy. We also aim to adapt the program in such a way that it suits people’s specific needs and abilities.

During the cycle you will be able to attend:
o Workshops, lectures and receive a (not mandatory) reading list.
o Chill events that are meant to get to know each other better and learn more about the different forms of oppression.
o Healing events to help you deal with the imperialist white-supremacist capitalist ableist hetero-patriarchy.

The program concludes with a brainstorm session in which project families are formed that are going to work on their own projects. These project families will organize an event or project as a working group for the University of Colour. Groups can organize various events and/or projects, ranging from an occupation or squat to organizing a lecture, starting a blog/website or do a movie screening.

After attending the 3 month program you will receive a University of Colour Decolonial School certificate. This certificate indicates you have been involved with activism, social justice organizing and have gained a basic understanding of (intersectional) decolonization from the University of Colour program. You will be meeting likeminded people and given the chance to develop/find your unique set of skills. Lastly, the program also gives you a chance to connect and meet with a larger network of activist groups and civil society.
