Day 2 - Introduction to Racism

The topic of Racism was intoduced by our expert for the day, Katrin Osterloh, and participants were asked to think about they associate with racism. They were then presented with examples of behaviours and asked to think about whether the examples were racist and also what made them racist. The discussion covered areas such as experience of racism, othering, control of identity and power. Then they were asked to look at definitions of racism and think about which aspects were important in their personal view of racism. The input led the participants to experience some strong feelings and led to some intense discussions.
