Care on Purpose: learning from emergence and stewardship

A talk by Margo Gustina and Nasha Taylor
Communities+Libraries & PhillyCAM

As librarian and scholar Nicole Cooke put it, change needs to occur on the micro (small), macro (big), and mezzo (intersection) levels in order to be transformational. In Care on Purpose we'll employ the lessons of Trauma Stewardship (Laura van Dernoot Lipsky) and Emergent Strategy (adrienne marie brown) to librarianship: how we establish boundaries of and for self-care which allow us to interact with one another, ourselves, and our work with fewer layers of toxic armor; how we establish protocols of care through policy and structure of service and use the power we have to organize for expansion of these policies beyond the library; and how to mitigate our inner-cop so we can employ compassionate rigor (Cindy Weisner) to our accountability processes in our institutions and with each other. We invite you to contribute your practice ideas with this open document of questions and provocations:
