DGI announces the program for Discussion Circles series in St Vincent and the Grenadines

Published on: May 6 / 2024

We are happy to announce the tentative schedule for the series of Discussion Circles in June 2024 in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

DGI in St Vincent begins its work with what we have called “discussion circles” which will be held between the 19th and the 26th of June. The aim of our hybrid (online and offline) discussions is to foster a space for dialogue that includes all stakeholders. Participants will include members of the general public, activists, educators, scientists, economists, friends of the Museum of Care and of the David Graeber Institute. Together, we will explore the following questions:

  • What might a genuinely decolonial institution look like?
  • What contribution can DGI make to strengthening communities most vulnerable to climate change?
  • What could members of the DGI and locals learn from each other and undertake together?

“Discussion circles” will concentrate on 3 key themes: Carnival, Technology and the work of David Graeber.

The institute’s mission is to explore how technology can help create a system where essential resources—like food, education, energy, and medicine—can be produced and distributed freely. That is, the DGI in St. Vincent seeks to support the production of intellectually intensive, not labour-intensive technology. We are looking for technologies, traditional and cutting-edge, that are centred on the reproduction of life instead of the reproduction of capital.

The days are split in two parts: the open discussion on hybrid format is followed by a community meal, planned and prepared by one of the participants. We will share the menu and words from out participants closer to the dates.
