In this space, we invite you to watch Decolonisation Context video by Samantha Suppiah, one of the co-designers of this course with design partners from Possible Futures.

While watching it you might carefully observe your body sensations, as well as, your thoughts and feelings.

Another suggestion as you prepare yourself to watch the following video, we suggest you stay curious about the language and words used in it. 

Power dynamics are modeled and reinforced through language, so keep your antennas on, and don’t take definitions for granted. When looking for definitions in your preferred dictionary, try to interrogate how the dictionary that you used gained the recognition they have today, by whom they are recognized, and validated, and why.

Together with this video, Samantha prepared a reference document where you will find all the references mentioned in the video above (click on lesson materials).
