About de l’animatrice

Having graduated in visual arts (college), in sociology and herbalism, Alexandra Zawadzki-Turcotte was first an activist and a political organizer. Then, through her academic journey, she focused on the intersection between historical epistemology of medicine and feminist questions, to finally lean toward herbalism. Nowadays, she’s interested in practicing and sharing, through one-time training, the use of medicinal plants, and also growing and transforming these plants. For her, this practice links itself to her initial journey, in the sense that it decisively poses as a feminist approach for the reappropriation of knowledge and expertise on bodies and healthcare. She started her business, Clotilde du Balai – Herbalist products, and workshops, 2017.
