Stick pedagogies are messy and imperfect. They remind us, “[l]ife is a meshwork” (Ingold, 2014, p. 57) requiring us to acknowledge as Haraway (2016) writes, “[i]t matters what matters we use to think other matters with; it matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what knots knot knots, what thoughts think thoughts, what descriptions describe descriptions, what ties tie ties (p. 12).
Pedagogies of conviviality exist as an experimental practice in creating conditions for encounters and gatherings that want to invent the new relational economies of new ways of being together.
