UNPACKED: Introducing Sheri Carr

Introducing UNPACKED graduate, Sheri. Read to find out more about their experience in educating for social change and how you can get in touch with them.

How did you start/become interested in educating for social change?

As someone who came into the activist scene from a non-academic background, I found my self struggling with language and standardised ways of learning. I wanted to be in and create spaces that valued lived experience, different learning styles, community and relationship building as a way to strengthen ourselves and our movements.

What are your top 3 strengths as an educator?

  • I love to be creative and encourage others to do so
  • I work with people where they’re at, there is no expectation of knowledge, expertise or mutual understanding
  • I understand that we learn from each other – we are all fallible, we make mistakes and we learn from each other. No one person holds all the knowledge.
What’s next for you in your educating/movement/organising etc. work?

I want to support people and groups to build, strengthen and grow in a way that is meaningful to them. I will continue to develop my framework about social change training to honour the ever-changing needs and desires of the movements for racial, social, economic and environmental justice.

What else might people want to know about you or what you do?

I am committed to growing, learning and unlearning.
