The R Word: Anti-racism Youth Events Across England 09.05.14 – 29.05.14
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.
Have you ever been overlooked at work, school or uni because of your colour? Are you tired of answering questions about where you’re from? Are you sick of feeling guilty and excluded from conversations about Race? Got an idea for kicking racism out of the big institutions once and for all?
Artists, young people, journalists, educators, writers, politicians, members of the criminal justice system and many more will investigate “the R word” and inspire actions. Local people will sit alongside experts to discuss how we can move from feelings to action and end racism this generation.
