During 8 lessons we focus on the work of two interesting thinkers: the Brazilian pedagogue Paulo Freire and Afro-American feminist bell hooks. Two main topics are critical consciousness and intersectionality. Critical consciousness is central in the work of Paulo Freire. bell hooks offers perspectives through the concept of intersectionality.
Philosopher Bleri Lleshi will introduce the two thinkers and enable the dialogue. A group of 20 participants will be able to follow the lessons. Critical reflection and participation of participants are essential during these lessons. The participants will have to work in a project on their own or in group. There will be a final moment in which the participants present their work. The idea is that they choose a topic and connect it to the work of one of the two thinkers.
The lessons are open to everyone: from 16 years old to 99 years and more. We encourage in particular Brussels youth to participate.
Only 20 participants will be selected. It is important to be able to attend all lessons. Register by sending a short motivation (in English, Dutch or French) why do you want to attend these lessons. Register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
