Becoming the Change

Sex, Power, Love and Money
Michael Johnson
Monica Day

 

Michael Johnson of GEO talks with Monica Day, a coach, performance artist, and writer with a unique approach to social change. They discuss how gender, race, and power dynamics can be addressed using creativity and alternative forms of expression; how understanding vulnerability as a strength, not a weakness, is a radical act;​ ​and how our emotional and political conundrums around money often obscure the very changes we are seeking to make. ​And finally, how​​ ​play and pleasure might be​ ​​the ​subversive tools​ ​​needed​​ ​for dismantling systems of oppression. Definitely not the usual​ way​​ of​​ ​talking​ ​about social change! But perhaps they should be.
