11 November 2020

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 00:00 on Wednesday, repeating until 18 November 2020

£145 – £190

GEM is proud to debut a new online course suited for learning professionals who are in a position to make change and influence equitable and positive action. It’s time to convert words into action and explore what being anti-racist means in practice. 

What can the heritage sector do about racism? 
Go further than being defensive and convert passive words into action. 

This course will provide you with the opportunity to: 

  • Learn what embedding social justice looks like in practice from speakers inside and outside of the museums, heritage and galleries sector.
  • Reflect on the societal structures, institutional policies and work cultures, as well as the content your programmes deliver which may mean that there is a degree of complicity in upholding racial inequalities.
  • Be vulnerable and talk with others on what their organisations are doing to be equitable.
  • Most importantly, create and action solutions.

Who runs the course?

Aksana Khan, Arts Youth Engagement Consultant will be running the course with featured speakers from a variety of museums and heritage settings.

When and where is it?

This virtual course will take place over 6 weeks and will be run on Zoom in the afternoons. There will be a combination of presentations, tasks to do in and between sessions, and an interactive group where you can keep in contact and network with course participants.
