    Building on the themes of the Participedia Summer School, this gathering of engaged scholars will explore the theory and practice of radical democracy through the lenses of power, disruption, care, creativity, the commons and new forms of democratic agency. Together, they will share stories about the impacts of radical democratic agency that address matters of concern such as inequality, Indigenous rights, racism, health crisis (including the drug poisoning crisis), and social isolation.
