ACCESSIBILITY IN SOMATIC MOVEMENT EDUCATION AND THERAPY

Friday, March 8th, 2024 from 10:30-11:45am ET

Accessibility is commonly defined as the quality of being able to be reached or entered, or the quality of being easy to obtain or use. In the context of ISMETA’s Equity, Justice and Accessibility (EJA) work, it may involve the capacity to make choices to engage in practices that support health and well-being in ways that are not limited by socio/cultural/economic factors including physical environment, language barriers, financial constraints, and concerns about basic safety.

In 2024, the EJA Committee will explore the concept of accessibility as it relates to Somatic Movement Education and Therapy. We will consider questions such as:

• Who participates in ISMETA?
• How do ISMETA members make their work accessible to the communities they work in
• How do we increase access to our work (and our international membership)
without recreating colonial dynamics from the past?

Please join us if you are interested in participating in these conversations!

COLONIALITY IN SOMATICS: CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2023 at 12:30pm Eastern U.S. time

The ISMETA Equity, Justice, and Accessibility Committee invites you to an online conversation, “Continuing an Inquiry into Coloniality in Somatic Movement Education and Practice”. This invitation is open to all people – ISMETA members and the general public.

ISMETA is currently a predominantly racialized white organization striving to implement its values of Equity, Justice and Accessibility more fully into our organizational practices. We seek to support our membership to do the same in their professional practices. Thus, we offer a bi-monthly series of community conversations about themes related to this goal.

PLEASE NOTE: Affinity groups based on racial and ethnic identities, sexual preference, gender identity, differing abilities, primary language, home country, and/or other identities are offered for anyone seeking relative safety within this context.
