Heal Her

Heal Her London: The Art & Ritual of Protest and Extinction Rebellion present a 2-hour training on how to use non violent direct action (NVDA) to address the climate crisis.

The training will cover the practice of non-violent techniques: showing you how to de-escalate tense situations, how to interact with the police, what to do if you get arrested and much more.

Extinction Rebellion is an international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse.

Facilitator: Jayne Forbes

Heal Her London: The Art & Ritual of Protest is an art and activism festival supporting environmental justice and women’s empowerment.

Heal Her is a global action for healing and prevention of sexual violence. Meeting in talking circles worldwide, we create rituals for storytelling, consciousness-raising, empathetic listening, and collective healing. Working with artistic facilitators, therapists, and healers, we provide creative and holistic methods for addressing sexual trauma. We have held events and festivals in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, and Mexico City. Our work has been supported with grants from the Burning Man Global Arts Fund and Daza Filmes, which featured the project in a documentary on artists combating gender-based violence.
