Ripples and Rumbles: We Are All Leaders, featuring Tammy Mudge

To subvert means “to turn from below.” This could mean from the lower levels, but also from places that are hidden, unspoken, taken for granted, and invisible. These are places inside ourselves, and in our relationships, that we sometimes don’t know how to talk about. But the smallest ripples in the stories we take for granted can lead to massive rumbles of change. In this series we talk about the inner shifts and the questions we can ask, to step into leadership in ways that are nurturing and regenerative. We talk about power, conflict, fluidity and adaptability, and learning to lead together.

In the fourth conversation in the series, we talk with Tammy Mudge about her inspiring work creating possibilities for collaboration and community with Every One Every Day Kjipuktuk-Halifax (EOED). EOED is a community building project in the North End of Kjipuktuk (Halifax) focused on Reconciliation through participation and relationships in and with the place where we are. For the last year and a half, the EOED team has been experimenting with practices of reciprocity, shared leadership, belonging, and participation. We talked with Tammy about what’s going well, what kinds of challenges and surprises they have experienced, and how they are bringing these values and the focus on Reconciliation into their internal dynamics and relationships as a team.

Tammy Mudge is L’nu (Illnew), from Glooscap First Nation, a mother of four and a member of the Mi’kmaq Nation. She is the Manager of Learning and Evaluation at Every One Every Day Kjipuktuk-Halifax, a Truth and Reconciliation initiative working to build a new system of neighbourhood participation that is reconciliation focused and inclusive to all, and a former part-time faculty member at Acadia University, where she taught Decolonizing Community Development. Tammy is also a member of the Atlantic Indigenous Evaluation Stewardship Circle and a member of the UNDRIP Working Group mandated by the Canadian Evaluation Society Board to provide direction on how to uphold the principles of UNDRIP and to contribute to the implementation of UNDRIP.
