Are you trying to say I'm racist? Trust for London workshop
25 October 2012
Trust for London are hosting this one-day event with practical workshops to explore the most effective ways of trying to change deeply entrenched racist attitudes, and how to move beyond the prevailing norm of 'zero tolerance', which excludes and ostracizes young people.
The event is on Thursday 25 October 2012 9.30-4.00pm and will be held at the newly refurbished Resource for London: 356 Holloway Road, London N7 6PA.
The workshops will be run by two organisations: Working with Men and Leap Confronting Conflict, both of which are involved in the Trust for London's Preventing Racist Violence Initiative. Working with Men's contribution to this project won an Institute of Community Cohesion award and both charities have had their excellent work recognised at the Charity Awards.
The second part of the day will be run using a process called 'Open Space' focused on the question:
'What is at the heart of racism and what can we do about it?'
Open Space allows everyone at the meeting to raise the issues that matter to them, share and develop ideas and consider recommendations for the future. It is participative, energetic and focused.
The event is particularly relevant to youth workers, teachers, community safety managers, policy-makers and those working with young people. To attend please RSVP by 12th October 2012 to Jaspal Babra with your name, organisation and any dietary and/or access needs. Places are limited.
