Resistance Through Rituals

On September 16, 2015 Wild Garden teamed with the Faith, Art and Activism Festival to podcast “Resistance Through Rituals” an open discussion on rituals, liturgy and political performance. Click below to listen to a recording of the full discussion.

What do rituals look like in 21st century North America? What could they offer today’s social justice movements, either as a mode of political performance or as the basis for new, communal liturgies of protest?

On September 16th, activist/academic Andrew Winchur, who has analyzed the rituals of recent strikes at York University and UofT, was joined by André Forget and Andrea Budgey to discuss protest as liturgy and the social power of political performance.
