Join the #DTMchallenge!

Do you want to challenge yourself in “decolonizing the mind” and get inspired and empowered in the fight against racism? Join the #DTMchallenge!

What is the #DTMchallenge?

The Decolonizing the Mind challenge (DTM challenge) is an online campaign to introduce you to decolonial theory and practice. Based on the music documentary The Uprising, the #DTMchallenge uses decolonial concepts discussed in the film and helps you apply them to your own life.

The challenge will take place from September 28th 2020 until November 30th 2020. Over the course of 9 weeks, Pravini will post a segment from The Uprising on her facebook page every week. With every segment she’ll post a “decolonizing the mind” activity you can do from home. Activities range from identifying colonial ideas and legacies to challenging these ideas and thinking of decolonial ways to shape our society.

You are encouraged to do the activity and post the outcomes on your own social media, with #DTMchallenge.

Why the #DTMchallenge?

Decolonization can be a complex topic. This social media challenge aims to make a complex topic accessible and engaging. Using film, music and your own daily experiences as a starting point, this challenge allows you to become familiar with decolonial theory and relate it to your own reality.
