The lecture is for any one interested in antiracist practices and has a need to bridge the gap between academic and everyday question around social justice. We will focus on examples around dance and art. Lecture consist of four key elements
1. Cultural sensitivity and how to approach and enter cultures that are not our own.
2. Antiracism and whiteness. Why is it important to focus on the norm and privilege?
3. Emotions. Unjust world and our positions in it brings up difficult feelings. If we really dig deep there is no objective approach to these topics and only when we face our uncomfortable emotions we know something groundbreaking is happening.
4. Allyship. Only from action will we built a better and more just world. How to get moving and use our own power and abilities around these questions?
