What Does AT Need to be Liberated From?
We are providing this mini-presentation and Q&A to introduce the AT Liberation Project (ATLP), formerly the Alexander Technique Diversity Coalition (ATDC), and to invite you to learn about this long-term project. During this session we will share who we are, our brief history, when and where we regularly meet, the topics we discuss, and the action projects we are currently collaborating on as well as individual initiatives. We believe that most AT teachers, trainees, and students value DEI, but many of us are unsure how this impacts our work or are uncertain where to begin. We are here as colleagues, opening this conversation in order to support each other in taking constructive action. Join us!
The AT Liberation Project (ATLP) is an international coalition of volunteers that curates space for those interested in the intersection of Alexander Technique (AT) and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). ATLP is composed of AT students, trainees, teachers, teacher-trainers, and supporters. ATLP has tasked itself with examining how AT principles and practices align with DEI values and goals. We gather to investigate how to create greater equity and accessibility in our individual teaching practices, to uncover biases found in AT history and current teaching models, and to provide tools that help us move toward a more open space of belonging.
