This course is an safe and interactive opportunity to learn and apply some of the latest thinking from anti-oppression theory to help us understand why and how we are socialised and conditioned in the dynamics of racism.
Racism is massively on the rise throughout the world. We are seeing rebellions throughout the world as people rise up against the issues impacting racialised people such as police brutality, different health outcomes as highlighted by the pandemic and widespread lack of opportunity.
This is a vital time to learn to challenge the dynamics of racism.
If we are not able to understand the dynamics in play, we are not able to critically analyse and do our part to intervene – in ourselves, our communities and our organisations – to create more inclusive ways forward.
The aim of this course is to create a safe and non-judgemental environment where we can all learn and grow. You may have little knowledge around issues of race – but feel deeply uncomfortable with the rhetoric and want to learn more; you may want to stand in solidarity with those that are rising up and need more knowledge to be able to do that; you may have lived experience of racism and want to understand more and/or you may work around these issues and want a theoretical and practical understanding to help support you with your actions.
By the end of the course, participants will have a greater understanding of how we are all socialised in racism, what patterns support this socialisation and some of the ways that we can challenge these patterns.
This will allow you to engage with these issues more deeply – in yourself and in what you see around you.
The aim is to shift your motivation to bring change.
