Rozi Toth: Cultivating agency in the climate crisis
We invite you to the first workshop in the Let’s Talk Arts! series of this semester, which will take place on the 1st and 2nd of February 2023. It will take place under the leadership of Hungarian researcher Rozalia Toth from Radboud University Netherlands, focusing on the transformation of education for climate change.
Cultivating agency in the climate crisis
Living in the Anthropocene raises fundamental questions about how to be in the world. Amidst dramatically escalating environmental changes our future can no longer be guaranteed. We live in times of uncertainty, the grounds that we stand on no longer feel like a solid base. Our ways of being are de-stabilized through a set of question about how to be human and how to relate to ourselves and the world around us.
In these rapidly changing times, induced by climate, often it might feel that we cannot do much, that we are lost in the system. Yet, our agency lies in learning how to live with crisis and to respond to it, or as Donna Haraway would say finding our “response-ability”, our ability to respond to crisis. The following workshops are inquiries into how we might find our agency and “response-ability” in the climate crisis. Learning the various methods of storytelling, art making with artificial intelligence, and personal vision making with Holistic Context writing are going to be helping us in our explorative journeys.
Workshop will take place on:
- February 1, from 2 to 5pm
- February 2, from 10am to 5pm. (attendance is required on both days)
The capacity of the workshop is limited, you can register for the workshop at this link or at the QR code below!
Rozi is an action researcher of the Future of Academia project at Radboud University. As part of her research, she co-designs and co-facilitates the honours lab ‘RE:PLACE – “Staying with the trouble” – Living, Learning, and Change-Making’.
Rozi’s mission is to co-create learning environments that enable learners to get to know themselves and through that their role in the world. Through her work, Rozi opens up experimental learning spaces that allow for a deeper connection to oneself, others including the more than human, and the places one belongs to. By using the power of imagination and connection, learning communities get to realise different futures for themselves, and for their communities, thereby creating tangible change in the world. By integrating the various pedagogies of: transformative, regenerative, place-based, transdisciplinary, experiential, embodied, community-based, and arts-based learning, Rozi hopes to contribute to an educational transformation in today’s world.
Come along and learn what you can do to make this world a sustainable place!
