Our series of free online workshops aim to open conversations around matters relating to diversity and inclusion.

Countering racial prejudice

  • Thursday 3 February
  • Time: 10am – 12noon
  • online via Zoom

This workshop, delivered by UK Pivot, will seek to explore some of the shades of racism with a focus on inclusivity. The workshop will offer an opportunity for self-examination and open discussions on allyship. It will also look at what creates barriers to inclusivity whilst simultaneously looking at what can be done to make Belfast feel like home for all. The workshop will include humour, poetry and videos addressing racial undertones and facilitate discussions with attendees about their own experiences and fears surrounding relationships with people of different ethnicities.

Black cultural dichotomy

  • Thursday 10 February
  • 10am – 12noon
  • online via Zoom

This workshop, delivered by UK Pivot, will seek to present the cultural differences of the black community in Belfast with the view of making a clear statement that the black community is not a monolith. The workshop will focus on sharing some elements of both African and Caribbean cultures, highlighting similarities and differences, whilst homing in on shared values. Multimedia formats will be used to showcase cultures and facilitate discussions on how Northern Irish culture and other cultures co-exist.

This series of three workshops, delivered by Tell MAMA and Faith Matters, will provide a brief overview of the history and diversity of the Muslim community in Belfast.
