and Cynthia Cockburn (to obtain this reading email us at betweenthelines-request@lists.riseup.net)

For the cyborg enthusiasts, see Haraway (link above), but don’t worry about this one, as we will look at a couple of pages during the meeting, and decipher collectively what on earth she is talking about!

The next DIY Discussion will take place on the 13th of March, meeting at 7pm for tea, skill sharing singing at 7.30pm, and then onto a discussion.

Here is a write-up of last weeks DIY discussion where we began a conversation about radical consent. We’ll be continuing this discussion at the session in March, so if you’d like to join us you could have a read through what we covered or if you were there and want a reminder, hopefully this is helpful.

If anyone has discussion points around radical consent or exercises that they’d like to propose to the group that’d be great! and if you wanna feed anything in then email the organising list.

Please also email us for the address of the venue where DIY Discussions is held.
