In this 90-minute online event, Integrating Care and Livelihoods cluster co-leads Amy Kipp and Dr. Roberta Hawkins will moderate a community conversation on care and its complexities. 

Panelists and Discussion 

The idea of ‘troubling care’ has been conceptualized by feminist scholars such as Ann Bartos (2018) and Parvati Raghuram (2016), calling us to consider the complex ways in which care is practiced, experienced, and understood. Academics, community benefit organizations, artists, activists, caregivers, and a range of other actors are doing this work by complicating what care means and re-imagining how it is practiced. 
​This conversation will feature a panel of practitioners and scholars who are engaged in the practice of “troubling care.” It will explore panelists’ everyday experiences and understandings of care, the practices they use to “trouble care,” and their visions for more caring futures. Panelists will include folks from the Guelph Neighbourhood Support Coalition (GNSC), Arts Everywhere's Complicating Care Series, and the University of Guelph. 


Captioning will be available for this event. It will also be recorded and made available on our website. If you have any other accessibility needs, please email liveworkwell@uoguelph.ca as soon as possible, and we will try our best to accommodate them.
