Trust Without Borders arrive to Rome: How to Organise Trust & Solidarity in Activist Struggles Without Borders

We live in a climate of political distrust. But at the same time activists_ from different backgrounds and countries across Europe are allying in solidarity movements within their cities and communities to build new societies, based on equality and justice for, by and with people.
On the occasion of Short Theatre 2022, our project “Trust Without Borders” arrives in Rome in collaboration with ESC Atelier Autogestito, curating the workshop How to Organise Trust & Solidarity in Activist Struggles Without Borders (Facebook event here). A joint research and learning meeting in which, through the story-telling method developed by Georg Blokus and Elisa Calosi, activists, academics and artists are invited to reflect on how to organise trust movements and solidarity practices of activism beyond national borders.
Participants are invited to tell their stories of political trust and mistrust, to analyse the causes of the ubiquitous climate of political discontent and to share forms of resistance and antagonistic strategies for building transnational trust and solidarity.
