For The Wild

Con­tin­u­ing the con­ver­sa­tion series, The Edges in the Mid­dle, pre­sent­ed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with UC Berke­ley’s Oth­er­ing and Belong­ing Insti­tute, For The Wild is delight­ed to share Bayo Ako­mo­lafe in con­ver­sa­tion with V (for­mer­ly known as Eve Ensler, play­wright, author, and founder of V‑Day and One Bil­lion Ris­ing). Speak­ing on the theme The Promise and Lim­its of Resti­tu­tion: Return­ing to Con­go, Bayo and V dance togeth­er in a con­ver­sa­tion that shows us por­tals of pos­si­bil­i­ty that edge us towards deep change. Dis­cussing the Con­go as both place and por­tal, Bayo and V con­tem­plate the per­sis­tent and fugi­tive glim­mer of pos­si­bil­i­ty with­in trau­ma and repres­sion. As we pay slow, deep atten­tion and care to unrav­el­ing and pro­cess­ing our sto­ries, how might we cre­ate the sacred space from which move­ment and growth may flow?

The Edges in the Mid­dle is a series of con­ver­sa­tions between Bayo Ako­mo­lafe and thought com­pan­ions like john a. pow­ell, V, Nao­mi Klein, and more. These lim­it­ed episodes have been adapt­ed from Bayos work as the Glob­al Senior Fel­low at UC Berke­ley’s Oth­er­ing & Belong­ing Insti­tute. In this role, Bayo has been hold­ing a series of pub­lic con­ver­sa­tions on issues of jus­tice and belong­ing for the Insti­tute’s Democ­ra­cy & Belong­ing Forum, which con­nects and resources civic lead­ers in Europe and the US who are com­mit­ted to bridg­ing across dif­fer­ence to strength­en democ­ra­cy and advance belong­ing in both regions and around the world. Bay­o’s con­ver­sa­tions encour­age us to rethink jus­tice, hope, and belong­ing by sit­ting amidst the noise, not try­ing to cov­er it up with pleas­ant rhythms.
