Rituals for Decolonization


When:  Wednesday, June 14th from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Where:  Lumen 1(B.023) Building in Wageningen (Droevendaalsesteeg 3a, 6708 PB Wageningen)


In Rituals for Decolonization, with Fazle Shairmahomed, you are invited to develop a personal and communal understanding of ancestry rooted in spiritual practices of meditation, writing, body movement, dance, multi-sensorial stimulation, altar making, and group talks.

The aim is to create a decolonial safer space where we can develop an understanding of what communal healing could look like in a society that is continuously coming into existence through colonialism. The history and reality of different people who were forced to migrate still exist in systems today, in which people are being marginalized, oppressed and excluded.

Fazle Shairmahomed creates decolonizing rituals, performance art, and dance. Their work is rooted in ancestral work and intersectional activism.
