The R Word: Ending Racism in the 21st Century30 April 2014
We’re excited to announce that Runnymede Trust has teamed up with the theatre and events company, The Red Room, to invite you to take part in open platforms of debate, performance and activism as part of the End Racism This Generation campaign.
Young people will sit alongside experts, artists, journalists, educators, writers and politicians to discuss how we can move from feelings to action and End Racism This Generation.
Why are some people so uncomfortable with the “R” word?
Over 4 inspiring platforms across 4 major cities in the UK, spaces will be created for people to talk some truths. Collaborating with a host of regional partners and featuring live performance, music and video mixed with conversation and testimony, each platform will be an opportunity to shed some light on Racism.
We are inviting you to have your say about the R word and want to hear how you think we can End Racism This Generation.

Racism in the UK is still endemic today. These platforms are designed to forge new alliances that will enable future generations – Black, White, East Asian and Asian – to contribute and benefit equally in all areas of life. Topher Campell, artistic director, The Red Room.
