Critical Bodies in Conversation
An online critical sports-and-movement conversation series by BoMoVu in collaboration with Online Seminars.

You are invited to the Critical Bodies in Conversation online series that brings together activists and sports-and-movement practitioners sharing their experiences.

In these conversations, we will be talking about discriminatory and oppressive attitudes in sports-and-movement based on bodily differences and social positions; supportive networks to deal with such attitudes; and ways of physical and social empowerment by movement practices.

Online Participation: We will be meeting on Zoom and live-stream our conversations on our Facebook accounts. You can participate by writing at the comments section on Facebook or using the chatboard feature on Zoom. You can also use your microphone and video on Zoom at the Q&A section. If you miss the live event, you can watch the recording as well. Please note that these meetings are public and recorded, so please do not share anything (audio, text, visual etc.) that you would not like to make public or get recorded.

Language: The live conversations will be held in participants’ native language or in English. We will add English subtitles to recordings when they are available.

BoMoVu – The Network of Sport and Body Movement for Vulnerable Groups ( is an association that develops programs to transform sport and body movement into social benefit and combats all kind of discriminations in sports. Thanks to our network of volunteer sport and physical activity practitioners, we bring together various groups such as children, refugees or women, and contribute to their social empowerment in line with their needs.

Online Seminars ( emerged out of the social goal of making local and critical seminars accessible to a broader public. It aims at contributing to the participatory and ecological production and distribution of knowledge across national boundaries. It is committed to making alternative educational offerings available in the Global South; reduce the ecological damages of the seminar and conference travel industry; and provide a participatory space for intercultural, multi-lingual, and translocal encounter among seminar organizers and participants.

These conversations are part of the Critical Body Project, supported by the French Embassy in Turkey and Women Win.
