Discussion on Friendship
Friendship makes for a different context for working together. We can support each other in intimate ways and have expectations of one another that are perhaps beyond professional support, on the flipside the familial nature of our relationships can also breed carelessness.
Solidarity is complicated as we are all individuals with complex and different ambitions, each with our own shifting relationships to both the work of the collective and being within it. We have solidarity with each other – and when you feel it, it’s powerful – but it is always nuanced.
