RESTival: Retreat/Repose; A Discussion with Dr. Derrais Carter

“If we can not imagine or envision a way to rest for 15 to 30 minutes a day, how will we be able to imagine or envision a world without police terror and equality for all? Our lack of imagination is intimately tied to our liberation. Our DreamSpace must be cultivated.”
-Tricia Hersey, The Nap Ministry

RESTival: Rest as Resistance

Throughout the month of November 2020, SEEDS and the Multicultural Resource Center will co-present a community RESTival – an opportunity to engage practices that center somatic wellbeing in the midst of a challenging socio-political landscape. Cultures of rest and care are crucial to build into our justice movements to create a more sustainable, humane world.


This event is about taking time and space to rest. Using soul music as our point of entry, we'll talk through how we hold ourselves and others in times of duress.

Dr. Derrais (like Paris) Carter is a writer, artist, and older brother. He's working on a few books that will never really be complete.
