“This document was put together in hopes it will spark conversations in homes with caregivers and little ones across the globe.


Young children notice and think about race.  


If by the end of this document you and your family are left wondering with deeper questions,  then it has served it’s purpose.


Keep listening.  Keep learning.”

Two mandatory articles for Pākehā New Zealanders to read and reflect on.

The land of the wrong white crowd: Growing up and living in the shadow of racism | Trevor Richards 

Hey, white women: Māori culture is not your birthright | Debra Hunt

+

How to Talk to Relatives Who Care More About Looting Than Black Lives  “…It’s your responsibility to talk to them, and do what you can to change their minds—or at least let them know, in the strongest possible terms, that you agree with the protesters that police violence against Black people is unacceptable and Black people have a right to safe and healthy lives. This is what allyship means in practice: doing the work by taking some of the burden off of the marginalized folks fighting for their lives. We need you right now (and always).”

Claire Press | WANT TO BE AN ACTIVIST? START ACTING


DO THE WORK


Recommended resources: 

“Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race”, by Reni Eddo-Lodge | “I can no longer engage with the gulf of an emotional disconnect that white people display when a person of colour articulates their experience,” she writes. “You can see their eyes shut down and harden.”  | “Racism is woven into the fabric of our world. This demands a collective redefinition of what it means to be racist and what we must do to end it.”

Kimberlé Crenshaw’s TED Talk (find it below) and anything by Audre Lorde. | Kimberlé Crenshaw’s work shows how social justice issues can overlap and add up to multiple oppressions. The discrimination experienced by these women does not fit into neat boxes marked ‘sexism’ or ‘racism’; the two things are impossible to disconnect and “double down on discrimination”. We need to re-examine the system, to re-structure it. It’s no excuse saying, “But I don’t see race.” The system sees it, and the system is rigged in all kinds of complex ways.

“How to be an Antiracist” by Dr. Kendi weaves ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism.

“We’re in a moment that highlights the fault lines in our society.

I ask you to consider the difference between solidarity and reform. To understand that when we say things like “we just want to go back to the way things were,” that we fundamentally exclude those for whom the status quo has always been unjust.

When it comes to addressing the collective trauma that defines the Black American experience, there is a systemic unwillingness to recognize the conditions under which our country was founded and to make reparations for these specific historical injustices.

For our continued work as a community, I ask every one of us who benefit from this system to look backwards in discomfort and to have the difficult conversations. To relearn our shared history. And to ask ourselves: What are my blindspots? What specific actions will I take to make this a more just world? Am I willing to engage and to make mistakes?

As a cross-cultural therapist, my renewed commitment is to helping people live their relationships in a society that grants them justice, equality, and dignity. And that means working to make the field of psychotherapy diverse, accessible, and culturally and structurally competent. I acknowledge my own white privilege and the responsibility of my platform. Right now I believe it is a time to listen attentively, to accept the discomfort when my own blindspots are revealed to me, and to amplify black voices.

The number of opportunistic looters and the damage they do pales in comparison to the number of Black Americans wrongfully locked up, killed, and silenced every year by state power and collective indifference. Think of all the heartache, the injustice, the lost lives and broken families and ask yourself - which is the real story here? Which should we be incensed by and which is the distraction?

“…in order to create a world where human beings can live and love and be healthy and create, you have to completely revolutionize the entire fabric of society.” — Angela Davis

Taking a pause, taking stock, and making space for black voices to be fully heard. Will only be posting helpful resources, actionable steps, or places to donate in solidarity with Black Lives Matters this week to #amplifymelanatedvoices

.

I can only lead through my actions and I personally have only ever learned by doing.

And in recognizing and reckoning with my privilege, I see how much more I have to be doing. Offscreen I will be centering my conversations with my white friends and families around anti-racism, donating to the causes listed below, furthering my education through the many courses, workshops, and books available to me, working on creating a more inclusive, diverse, and intersectional presence and output, and learning what white allyship truly looks like so I can live the rest of my life fully embodying it.”

“Enough spiritual bypassing. Enough praising the “thought leaders” doing the bare minimum. It’s time to question every person and business you admire, follow & ask if they’re committed to doing the work.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And please let’s remember: the work exists & continues outside of the internet.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

White people; untie your tongues.

Silence is apathy and apathy kills.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“Spiritually” is not an excuse.

This work is not secular. SpiritualIty and radical action towards injustice are counterparts. What is & remains “low vibrational” is privilege in action.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

For the white and privileged:

The work is uncomfortable.

The work will test relationships.

The work will ruin relationships.

The work will put a strain on your life.

The work comes at a cost.

And so it should.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

_________________________

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So today I ask you —

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1. where are you committed (outside the internet) to ending racial discrimination and systematic oppression?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2. What does that look like?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3. Why is it necessary for you & everyone you know to do this work?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

4. In what ways, when and how have you actively ignored this work In the past?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

5. Who do you owe an apology to, for this? How can you show you are sorry not with words only, but tangible and quantitative action?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

6. What resources have you found and can you share when white people say, “I just don’t know what to do, I feel helpless.”

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

No white person reserves the right to feel helpless in this situation. Do the work.

LINK IN BIO: Anti-Racist Resources for White People.”

“I correct people when they call me an “activist” because there are people who actually deserve that title - I am just trying to be a decent person. A decent person is moved to protect another person from being harmed. A decent person mourns the loss of another person. A decent person stands up against the unethical, immoral and abhorrent treatment of another person. Being a decent person means being anti-racist. There is no gray area. These are the things we must do daily to combat white supremacy. To end systemic racism and establish true equity. Thank you @ha.w.a for sharing @ye.tunde’s button contract. Read it, sign it, revisit it often. There will be a learning curve. It will be uncomfortable. There will be repercussions (emotional, financial, etc). But I promise you it feels fucking great to stand up for what’s right. And everything that matters to us is at stake if we don’t.”

With her enigmatic figurative sculptures, New Zealand artist Francis Upritchard (born 1976) occupies a unique position within the contemporary sculpture scene. Upritchard’s oeuvre is characterized by in-depth experimentation with material, colour, shape and scale. The sculptures are devoid of any cultural, geographical or chronological boundaries. References can range from mokomokai and Japanese folklore to futuristic hippies. Fascinated by museology and design, Upritchard often presents her sculptures in self-designed displays and scenography.

The project at the Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens is a reinterpretation of the Wetwang Slack exhibition at the Barbican Centre (London, 2018). Wetwang Slack, an archaeological site in East Yorkshire, was the starting point for exploring unusual materials such as balata, a rare Brazilian rubber from the Amazon forest. For Big Fish Eat Little Fish, Upritchard will create a number of new works in a scenography that embraces the architecture of MDD. The title refers to a drawing by Bruegel who, just like Upritchard’s work, alludes to a meaningless world in which the powerful instinctively prey on the weak.

If your children (or you!) are looking for something to read during lockdown, I suggest the utterly marvellous “Book of Hopes”, available totally free from today here: https://literacytrust.org.uk/family-zone/9-12/book-hopes/  

Edited by the fantastic author, Katherine Rundell, “Book of Hopes” is a collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures with hope at their heart, created by some of the world’s greatest children’s writers and illustrators.

 ”…I think stories of transformation, of wild glories and everyday glories, of magic both real and imaginary, can act like a map.  They give us a push towards hope.  Real, true hope isn’t the promise that everything will be alright - but its a belief that the world has so many strangenesses and possibilities that giving up would be a mistake; that we live in a universe shot through with the unexpected.  There’s never been a single decade in human history when we have not taken ourselves by surprise, we, the knobbly-kneed, wonky-toothed human species have enormous potential for change… the possibilities for beauty, for transforming the world are literally infinite.  "  


I thought of you Alicia and Isabella and Ruth and Karen, with chapters about cats and kindnesses, insects and bugs and things that grow, magic and remarkable friendships… and the Roald Dahl fan in me loves that there’s a chapter called “Excellently Revolting” (There’s also a short story featured by Dahl’s granddaughter, Sophie Dahl, (the Sophie that inspired the heroine from “The BFG”) about an adventurous Tortoise called Torty  -  I found out about this book from her.)

The Book of Hopes | National Literacy TrustAward-winning children’s author, Katherine Rundell, has launched The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown.literacytrust.org.uk

ELIURPI was born in 2010 from the hand of the designer Elisabet Urpí and the photographer Nacho Umpiérrez. Their workshop is in Barcelona, and from there they design their collections, celebrating the romanticism of artisanal craftsmanship. Each hat is created individually, using handcraft techniques that produce sculptural and high-quality pieces that seem almost like works of art. Their wide-brimmed hats are made from natural, sustainable and locally sourced materials, and shaped using antique hat blocks.

Corinne Julius interviews Elisabet Urpí in our latest issue, “Intriguingly she always designs with a particular woman in mind… ‘She is an elegant and timeless woman. I think of the women who wear our pieces and I get inspired by them. I think my vision is feminine and elegant, but not from the past. I regret that elegance is lacking in the 21st century.’”

“Abuela, ¿cómo se afronta el dolor?”
“Con las manos, cariño. Si lo haces con la mente en lugar de aliviar el dolor, este se endurece aún más”.
“¿Con las manos abuela?”
“Sí. Nuestras manos son las antenas de nuestra alma. Si las mueves tejiendo, cocinando, pintando, jugando o hundiéndolas en la tierra, envías señales de cuidado a la parte más profunda de ti. Y tu alma se ilumina porque le estás prestando atención. Entonces las señales del dolor ya no serán necesarias”.
“¿Las manos son realmente tan importantes?”
“Sí, hija mía. Piensa en los bebés: comienzan a conocer el mundo gracias al toque de sus pequeñas manos. Si miras las manos de los viejos, te cuentan más sobre su vida que cualquier otra parte del cuerpo. Todo lo que se hace a mano se dice que está hecho con el corazón. Porque es realmente así: las manos y el corazón están conectados. Los masajistas lo saben bien: cuando tocan el cuerpo de otra persona con sus manos crean una conexión profunda. Es precisamente a partir de esta conexión que llega la curación. Piense en los amantes: cuando se tocan las manos, hacen el amor de una manera más sublime”.
“Mis manos abuela … ¡cuánto tiempo no las he usado así!”
“Muévelas, mi amor, comienza a crear con ellas y todo dentro de ti se moverá. El dolor no pasará. Y en cambio loaue hagas con ellas se convertirá en la obra maestra más hermosa. Y ya no dolerá más. Porque habrás sido capaz de transformar su esencia”.

De Elena Bernabè (autora).

Emancipatory Catastrophism In Times Of COVID-19 | Dr Thomas Owen

“COVID-19 has disrupted politics, the economy, and everyday citizens’ lives in major ways across the planet. Can – and should – such disruption be welcomed as an opportunity for progressive social change?”  

“…What happens when so many are asked to sacrifice individual freedoms for collective wellbeing, regardless of the ideological dispositions of their society?  What happens when so many are forced to confront the material consequences of their daily lives’ deep integration within a global supply chain?While hoarders, unilateralists, and panic buyers have captured much of the spotlight, it has been even more remarkable to witness the willingness of so many citizens to sacrifice their personal conveniences for the greater public health good.”
