The Organizing Committee of the “II Paulo Freire Conference: Building the bridge between Popular Education and University” communicates that reflections and actions on accessibility, from a perspective that fight ableism, have been carried out, because we are convinced that popular education must be built by everyone, including people with disabilities. Thus, the activities proposed by the Organization Committee – Opening and Closing Conferences – will ensure the presence of interpreters and audiodescription. We know that these actions do not guarantee universal accessibility, but they are made on a basis that takes into account the (material and human) resources that we have. We emphasize that alliances with other entities to enable more resources were made, however not always successfully. Even so, the Committee is putting forward the fight against ableism and is working to give orientation to the authors who will promote activities during the conference, so that they can also make the spaces as accessible as possible. Our struggle is not over, there is still a lot to build, but we continue together in hope, as Paulo Freire said. So, if you are interested in being part of the Accessibility Team to build a popular education that fights ableism, you can fill in the form available in this link. If you also need any other action on accessibility that was not contemplated above, please write to email@example.com and we will do our best to ensure your participation in the conference.

See below the speakers already confirmed:
Imagination and conjecture about a different world than the one of oppression, are as necessary to the praxis of historical “subjects” (agents) in the process of transforming reality as it necessarily belongs to human toil that the worker or artisan first have in his or her head a design, a “conjecture,” of what he or she is about to make. Here is one of the tasks of democratic popular education, of a pedagogy of hope: that of enabling the popular classes to develop their language: not the authoritarian, sectarian gobbledygook of “educators,” but their own language-which, emerging from and returning upon their reality, sketches out the conjectures, the designs, the anticipations of their new world. Here is one of the central questions of popular education – that of language as a route to the invention of citizenship.
