In mid-May, after months of working via computers and phones, a few of the Icarus coordinators will be getting together by the Atlantic for a collaborative-work retreat. Weâ€™re going to be working on some concrete structure and function elements, like coming up with a working-guide-to-Icarus that lays out organizational roles - what we do and how we do it.
The tech team, Manu Sachdeva and Taran Rampersad, are going to be working with coordinators on website overviews and growth strategies. Weâ€™ll also be spending some time considering our work as an organization that seeks to be allies in collective liberation by doing conscientious and relevant work at the intersection of mental health and anti-oppression.
Icarus coordinators will be posting a reportback and we're hoping that the work done this year will support more opportunities for working with and visioning with the dispersed community in the coming months.
