Creating Emergent Spaces for Sexual Violence Prevention During COVID-19

Wednesday, 16 December 2020

Building trust and relationships with collaborative partners and community members is a critical part of preventing sexual violence, Physical distancing can make community building and conversation difficult - but it’s the people that make the space, not the shared location.

The North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault recently published a document applying the framework of adrienne maree brown’s book Emergent Strategy to practice emergent spaces in our prevention work. Join the authors of “Emergent Space: Finding an Alternative” on this web conference to discuss potential applications of emergent spaces, explore the need for intentional connection in prevention spaces, and identify ways to center humanity and interconnectedness while in a physically distant, often virtual, context.
