BIPoC Empowernment Workshop

Thursday, September 9th, 19.00-20.00, BlackBox, Gessnerallee Südbühne, Gessnerallee 8, 8001 Zurich

Workshop – Meral (Awareness Basel) und Claudia (Alliance against Racial Profiling)

Even educational institutions such as schools and universities are not free of racism.
This workshop aims to support people with experiences of racism in their everyday life at educational institutions. The workshop creates a space to analyze different situations and to develop antiracist empowerment practices together in order to strengthen each other. Through exchange, physical exercises, and the compilation of individual empowerment practices, the participants will develop a personal ‘toolbox’ of strategies for action and resistance.

The workshop is explicitly aimed at pupils, students and employees of educational institutions who are exposed to racism, such as refugees, migrants, people with migration experience, “Second-generation” migrants, Black people, People of Color, Sinti, Roma, Yenish, Jewish, Muslim and many more. This is by no means an exhaustive list.
