How to Complain came about because no one teaches us the art of complaining. If anything, the act of complaining is heavily stigmatized. When those from a marginalized background raise a problematic issue, it is frequently written off as a mere “complaint.” When those who are from a more dominant background say the exact same thing, they are more likely to be lauded for “speaking out.” This workshop is geared towards valuing your voice, no matter who you are.
The goal is to develop different methods of effectively landing a complaint while prioritizing self-care and avoiding burnout. We’ll run through various scenarios, talk about feelings and impulses, and discuss practical tips.
Workshop will be facilitated by Emma. Emma is originally from a large US city, and now works in a support staff role in higher education.
Regardless of governmental regulation to workshop will take place. If possible, the workshop will take place in person at WORM Boomgaardsstraat 71, 3012 XA Rotterdam) if not we will contact you in a timely manner with a ZOOM link!
