Our #LiberatingSundaySchool guest this week: Thandi Gamedze!! Thandi is a PhD student at the University of Johannesburg’s Centre for Education Rights and Transformation. Her PhD research is conceptualising the church as classroom, exploring how (and what kind of) education happens and is negotiated within these spaces, and the wider implications of this. She currently works for an NGO called The Warehouse which journeys with churches in their practical and theological responses to injustice within their contexts. Thandi also volunteers as a facilitator for SpeakUp, a public speaking programme run by Bottomup, an NGO that works with high school students in developing critical consciousness towards change. She is deeply committed to the work of critique and reimagining (as both action and reflection) towards a world that is just, nurturing and kind and believes that the arts- and for her personally, poetry in particular- are integral to this work.
