I’m a co-founding member and Special Projects Director of Partners for Collaborative Change.
PFCC supports organizations to become more equitable through a two-fold approach:
• Democratizing research, planning and design
• Anti-Oppression facilitating and coaching
PFCC’s roots are in historic movement work. Our methodology is a hybrid of the theories and practices of Paulo Freire, bell hooks, Augusto Boal, Myles Horton and Kimberlé Crenshaw, among many others. We bring together Theatre of the Oppressed, Popular Education, Participatory Action Research and Ecopedagogy.
Our current projects include:
- ACTual Theatre of the Oppressed Troupe (By Any Plays Necessary)
Our services include:
Curriculum 1: Coliberate: Creative community (and youth) led change.
Curriculum 2: Going Glocal: an inquiry-based approach to global education and planetary citizenship.
- Basics: Curriculum, tailored webinar, coaching sessions
- Essentials: Curriculum, Training for Trainers, coaching sessions
- Comprehensive: Curriculum, advanced Training for Trainers, co-facilitation support, coaching sessions
