Join us this Saturday November 18, from 12-2pm for our fourth instalment of Around the Outside, led by Renata Field and Okapi Neon.
COMMUNITY CARE LABOUR DISCUSSION
Discussion facilitated by Renata Field and Okapi Neon
As most countries round the world under capitalism experience a failing health care system that is expensive and inaccessible, what can individuals and communities do to take care of each other? Society puts a lot of pressure on the individuals to take care of themselves in private or rely solely on family members or partners. Often people can be alienated from their biological families so that is not always an option and care needs to be shared with friends, partners and chosen family. Individual self care or care only shared with one other person can be overwhelming, impossible and isolating, so what are the difficulties and benefits of sharing care labour? What does care labour look like to you? How can communities best take care of each other?
