abstract

ACT! - Event in the context of the workshop programme of #courage2018


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. 


Targets:



  • Reflect on experiences of discrimination

  • Develop strategies of empowerment


Methods:



  • Theatre of the Oppressed

  • Different methods of reflection in groups and individually

  • Round of talks


This workshop will be hold in English.


A registration is possible via the website of the Center for Continuing Education (ZfW) until 04/10/2018.
