How can science be used as a tool for liberation?
Scientists and community organizer, Kendra Krueger, guides us through a process of reclaiming science as a tool for personal and social liberation. We'll take a look at decolonizing the language and formalisms of our current scientific paradigm that have historically disempowered and excluded the wisdom of ancient and indigenous peoples. Using movement, games and physics we'll reintegrate the analytical and intuitive mind and discover new methods to liberate our mind, body and spirit through knowledge, knowing and finding out.
