As GEN Toolkit Consultant, Camille Barton is developing the Global Environments Network’s first toolkit on Weaving Grief, the Body and Transformative Justice, a practical ‘how-to’ guide on embodied grief practices for supporting environmental advocacy and transformative justice.
Camille is an artist, writer and cultural somatics educator, working on the intersections of wellness, drug policy and transformative justice. Camille is the director of the Collective Liberation Project, and the creator of a trauma informed approach to diversity and decolonisation work that centres the body and lived experience.
Camille offers Embodied Social Change – movement sessions that fuse somatics and partner work to explore how oppression, such as racism and ableism, is rooted in the body; and how we can re-pattern it using mindful attention and movement. In 2020 an Embodied Social Change workshop was featured in the VPRO documentary, The Post Racist Planet.
Camille is currently researching grief on behalf of the Global Environments Network, creating a tool kit of embodied grief practices to support efforts for intersectional ecological justice. They also work as an advisor for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), ensuring that MDMA psychotherapy will be accessible to global majority communities most harmed by the war on drugs.
