Anti-Racism Training (ENG)
Discover the mechanisms of racism & find ways of reducing its impact
Dr. med. Amma Yeboah & Clementine Ewokolo Burnley, Phoenix e.V.
Time: 10./11.03 09:00-17:00
Target group: all representatives of founding partners and member organisations
Seats available: 18
Different „cultures“, „races“, „ethnicities“, „religions“? „Black“, „white“, „people of colour“? „Germans“ and „foreigners“ – „we“ and „the others“?
What do we know about „the others“ and what about „ourselves“? What is „learned“, what is „true“ and what is a „construct“? What is „white identity“ in a „multicultural world“? What hinders and what enlivens encounters between members of German majority society and those perceived as foreigners, migrants or from a culture different from “ours?”
Every day, the corresponding images and ideas are reinforced by media, families, colleagues and friends as well as political culture. This training strengthens awareness, intensifies the knowledge of your proper personality and finally poses the question: How can I effectively take action against racism? The training is directed at white people ready to confront their white privilege.
Participants are invited to reflect on the impacts of their own social conditioning as shown through their behaviour, to get to know the history of racism, its current manifestations in workplace and intimate relationships and to work together on strategies to create a culture of understanding.
Part of the training are regular inputs, exercises and reflection sessions in plenary, group or pair work, through role-play, worksheets, essays and video contributions.
This Workshop will be held in English. Continuous participation on both full days is required for registration.
