Ageism, classism, racism, sexism, ableism, anti-traveller racism, heterosexism, homophobia, anti-semitism, gender dissonance… we live in an intersectional world with increasingly challenging environments to navigate.

As working sensitively and pro-actively with diverse communities becomes increasingly crucial, we are interested in challenging the term ‘safe spaces’ and want to instead offer BRAVE spaces as an environment to guide such work. Online or offline, verbal, action or artistic-based, brave spaces are settings that are prejudice-conscious and risk-aware, while supporting the freedom to express.

Join socially-engaged artist, Susanne Bosch and founder of Good Day Cork, Joanna Dukkipati, in a two-day creative space from which to examine your positions in society, learn how to hold space for uncomfortable and transformative conversations with diverse groups in difficult times and explore strategies for action against injustice.
