About the Event

Detox – “a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances; detoxification.”

The EDI Detox sessions is a club that meets every 6 weeks, led by Dr Ope Lori, from PILAA, that sees the unpacking of texts (film, books and podcasts) shared amongst the group, to be later unpacked and digested as they tackle current EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) themes: Race, LGBTQIA+, Faith & Religion , Sexual Orientation, Gender, Disability, Mental Health, Socio-economic status, as well as other hot topics.

EDI Detox  provides a meeting space for attendees to discuss contemporary issues related to the themes of the text. It is a space to question what we digest and to look to the root causes as well as symptoms and solutions, in order to challenge what we think we know and take for granted in our everyday lives.

Come and share, listen, discuss, debate and unpack from different perspectives!

First Session: 14 December 10 - 11.30am GMT via zoom
