Cultural Integration Workshops for Staff and Students – An offering of ways to increase inclusive practice at within a university setting

Activity: Academic Talks or PresentationsWorkshopTeaching

Description

Throughout this academic year Nathan Dodzo, Programme Leader for Creative, Film and Television and Gemma Boaden, Programme Leader for Acting have been running ‘Cultural Integration’ Workshops for the students on both programmes. These workshops have specifically been designed for students to attend and engage in discussions and interactive games addressing unconscious bias and creating inclusive and welcoming environments. The workshops have been run on a monthly basis and have targeted themes such as identity, race, gender, privilege, belonging, heritage, creating inclusivity, celebrating differences – what does that mean, and labels.
We would like to run a workshop presentation for participants that represents a section of what we have already run for the Acting and Media Programme students this academic year. This would give participants a flavour of what the experience of participating in the project is like and hopefully spark ideas of how individuals could lead these type of activities for themselves.
The workshop would target the area of social privileges and identity. The workshop will include an interactive quiz, a short video and break out discussions with a summary group discussion. The interactive workshop will last approximately 45mins with a section at the end to highlight the other types of activities and resources we have used and time for discussion and observation about the experience of participating.
