Katrina Shields and Bobbi Allan reflect on two decades of activist education – Interhelp Australia, the Social Change Training and Resource Centre, Heart Politics and Despair and Empowerment workshops. “Tell your stories, support each other’s highest values, share your knowledge and skills, ask questions, listen, learn together, grieve losses, celebrate every small success and remember to have some fun! While the state of the world calls loudly for billions of ‘ordinary activists’ to step forward, it calls equally strongly for giving caring attention to activists’ wellbeing. Even in the Tiger’s Mouth, we can thrive.”
Thank you for your dedication and leadership, Katrina and Bobbi!
