Community Knowledge Alliance

Community Knowledge Alliance

The WGSI Community Knowledge Alliance (CKA) is an initiative aimed at strengthening the intellectual and practical ties between communities of feminist scholars and feminist practitioners. CKA seeks proposals that are meant to galvanize, encourage, and facilitate discussions across different organizational sites (non-profit settings; workplaces, grassroots social movements; municipal, provincial, national, international, and transnational government settings; and universities, including organizations and cultural organizations engaged in musical, literary, visual or performance media).
