Activating Radical Community-Care
February 8th, 2023 12PM - 1PM PST Join the BCMA and Madison Tardif for the latest IBPOC Museum Professionals Network webinar on community-care! In this session, participants will be provided with resources and tools to think about their own identity and positionality in relation to their professional, interpersonal, and communal relationships. As a starting point for engaging with themes of anti-racism, community, building and self-preservation in harmful systems, this session will focus on empowering individuals to employ acts of radical self- and community- care. We encourage registrants to send questions around the topic of this session beforehand so that we can make the most of our discussion time together online. If you have any questions you would like to submit, please send them via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. About the Speaker: Madison Tardif (she/her), MA Madison is of mixed Afro-Indigenous and European ancestry and currently resides and works on unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tseleil-Waututh territory. It is through her own lived experience as a multiracial person that Madison began exploring concepts of identity, power, privilege, and systems of oppression. During her graduate degree, she furthered understanding of community engagement, systems change, and decolonization. Her research focused on policy and decision-making in Indigenous self-governments and gave her a different perspective on leadership, community-centred decision-making, and decolonial approaches to governance. Since then, her passion for human rights and community-building has led her into a career focused on promoting justice, equity, decolonization, indigenization, and anti-racism. In her current role as an Equity Education Strategist at the University of British Columbia, Madison focuses on anti-oppression through capacity-building, conflict engagement, education, and community-care.
