About our workshops
CHALLENGING RACISM AND ISLAMOPHOBIA THROUGH THE ARTS is a dynamic two-part workshop series designed for High School youth.

PART 1 (2 hours long): We use Tik Tok and photography to introduce the concept of Islamophobia ans discuss how it intersects with other forms of oppression, such as anti-Black racism. We then use theatre-based exercises to practice bystander intervention.

PART 2 (2 hours long) We use documentary film, visual art and poetry to illustrate how we can raise awareness about racism Islamophobia, and create new narratives. We conclude by inviting students to create their own art to be showcased at the Rivers of Hope conference (which will be in June 2021).
