OUR STORY


Political Well-Being Study has taken shape in July 2021 following long discussions, heart-to-heart talks and exchanges of views. Between July-December 2021, we organized four online workshops focusing on the well-being of citizens and activists living under authoritarian regimes.

We have also realized two online panel discussions, the first one “Feeling Well and Collective Healing in Authoritarian Regimes” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yi9RGFeuI18), the second one “Re-Establishment of Common Life” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rCeLswboySU). The interest our study aroused in this short period of time was an expression of the need in this field and gave us motivation to continue this study. The second part of our story started in April 2022. This time we planned a longer term and a more comprehensive study. Our target was to first make people more familiar with the “Political Well-Being” approach and then to make well-being, putting emphasis on economic democracy, more prevalent for the citizens, and queer feminist care based organizing, dealing with individual and organizational empowerment together, more prevalent for activists.

In this scope we are discussing individual well-being in terms of developing our individual, mental and physical power. Political well-being on the other hand, indicates getting stronger on individual, organizational and social levels. Therefore our perspective reaches out to democracy, well-being, organizing and arts. We are making discussions and also learning together through art, acting, meditation, yoga and dancing.
