Anti-racism for cultural workers: join us

- 27 October 2022

Racism impacts the arts sector in systemic, structural and interpersonal ways. It is all of our responsibilities to challenge and change this. Join SCAN to reflect and grow in our journey to an equitable future.

We are offering subsidised places on a course with co-facilitators Laurie Brown and Naomi Shoba which aims to support cultural practitioners to embed anti-racism in our practices. Over a course of six, webinar-style sessions, participants will be able to explore anti-racist values, anti-racist practice, and our own roles within systemic racism and white supremacy. We will be learning and discussing how to bring together anti-racist values with everyday practice. Participants will be offered resources and reading and reflection materials.

Often the labour of dismantling racism is left to people of colour. This course is open to everybody, however, it is designed for white arts and culture professionals looking to challenge racism and will be focused on anti-racist practice with and for artists, culture professionals, and arts organisations.

Each two-hour live session will take place on a Friday morning, 10-12am, from November 11 to December 16. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to view speakers and slides, take notes, and take part in discussion.

Course fee: SCAN is able to offer subsidised fees and there are 10 places available.
Freelancers/individuals: £30 for 6 sessions
Organisation fee £80 for 6 sessions
