I participated and continue to participate in various local and cross-cultural (non)academic gatherings exercising critical pedagogies to challenge designed frameworks of oppression in both urban and rural environments, and to critically scrutinise anthropological methodologies to understand and represent these phenomena. I took on various roles such as facilitator, researcher, and learner in these learning programmes. Below is a selected list of events in which I participated.
