New SEED Events in June
SEED is excited to announce two new SEED events happening this June!
ReSEED: Revisit, Renew, Recharge, June 22-24, is a three-day opportunity for previously trained SEED leaders to reunite and recharge at a time when our work in educational equity is as urgently needed as ever. More specifically, we will be working on sharing and developing our facilitation skills both through session planning and through exercises modeling challenging situations during SEED seminars.
The Wisconsin SEED Institute, June 14-19, is the result of a partnership between the Wisconsin Indian Education Association and the National SEED Project. The Institute will engage 25 Wisconsin educators and citizens in facilitating ongoing, structured, group conversations in which all voices can be heard; examining how their own stories relate to social systems; learning from the lessons of their own lives as well as from texts; and turning oppression and privilege into agency and action. Participants will complete their week with a plan in hand to go home and start their work of making communities more gender fair, multiculturally equitable, socioeconomically aware, and globally informed.
Applications are now closed for the June sessions of ReSEED and Wisconsin SEED Institute. We will be holding another ReSEED in October 2015, but are still finalizing details. If you are interested in attending a future SEED event of any kind, please let us know and we will keep you posted.
