Part of the beauty and continued relevance of anarchism comes from the diversity and constant evolution of its theoretical and practical approaches. However, anarchists in different locations, different subcultures, different social groups, etc often do not collaborate, talk to each other, or even know about each other.  Rarely do they see themselves as all acting together to pursue overarching strategies. After a short input to help frame the discussion, this session invites participants to 'map' different contemporary approaches and practices that are either explicitly anarchist or closely related to it, discuss if/how they can be combined, and how links of practical solidarity can be established, thereby  potentially identifying emergent strategies beyond the short-term.
