How can I learn to handle experiences of discrimination in my everyday life?

18. October 2018 @ 10:00 - 19. October 2018 @ 16:00

This workshop is directed towards students studying at TU who experience different forms of discrimination, in particular in the context of migration.  Racism and other forms of discrimination are often not made a subject of discussion in our daily life and experiences are silenced. Why is it so difficult to talk about it? What does discrimination do to us and our emotions? With several methods, including the Theatre of the Oppressed after Augusto Boal, this workshop wants to offer a safe space to reflect on these sensitive topics regarding different contexts, such as in university, at home or at work. Furthermore, we want to gather strategies that strengthen empowerment and self-determination for whom experiences forms of discrimination in daily life.

This workshop will be hold in English.
