In your experience... What is the Real Work of Social Change?
The writing of the Barefoot Guide 4 is continuing on many fronts. The first drafts that were started at the Writeshop last November in Jo'burg are in and the next phase of feedback leading to second drafts is beginning.
BUT, the invitation is still out to any practitioners who would like to contribute a page or two - even a story, a poem, some precious insights gathered from an interesting experience - whatever you have that you would love to share. Don't worry if you think you cannot write - we will help you with that.
Simply write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your idea or question.
Who’s thinking about social change? We are! Are you?

Using Pantoums for
Deeper Reflections - 3 versions
This is a lovely exercise to open or to close a session. In a very structured way, sentence by sentence, all participants are able to write a poem which reflects their feelings and thoughts in a way that gets around self-censorship, opening the way for more authentic conversation. (The Pantoum is is a form of poetry derived from the Pantun, a Malay verse form - specifically from the pantun berkait, a series of interwoven quatrains). We have given 3 different sets of instructions as examples for how this can be adapted - e.g. for visioning, for connecting with work and the will, for facing loss or pain.
