Calendar of Resistance
Time: It is best to leave at least an hour for this final session.
Learning Style: Group-building or small groups, oral, visual & auditory
This activity works great as a final session and can be done simultaneously with the Action Mapping session above or as a standalone. It can be done as a full group or in small groups. The idea is to create a plan for future actions that are coming up. It can include items that the group is planning or upcoming events to share.
The facilitator makes a calendar on a big piece of paper and shares upcoming events. The group then adds more events and discusses what to work on. After a while, the group discusses practicalities around when and who will do this work and adds it to a calendar in color codes. This can be a grid, a mindmap, or however the facilitator wants to arrange the information. Be creative. We want groups to end on a high note with ideas of ways to build, continue and move forward.
Large board or piece of paper with markers
Link this to the Action Mapping above and do the two sessions simultaneously.
