Creating Anti-Racism Culture
Creating Anti-Racism Culture is designed to help organisations make a proactive step-change towards a meaningful and enduring anti-racism culture.
Developed by Contact in partnership with writer, artist, Artistic Director and CEO Keisha Thompson, this programme is designed to help organisations make a proactive step-change towards a meaningful and enduring anti-racism culture.
Originally created and successfully rolled out as in-house training for Contact trustees, we believe that this programme can have real value and impact beyond our own organisation.
To date, we have delivered training to a range of clients, such as Manchester Art Gallery, Battersea Arts Centre and HOME. Available as either a one day introductory course, two day intensive programme or Teacher or Education Focused CPD, the training unpicks the structural complexities of prejudice and discrimination, and provides a space for reflection, challenge and ultimately changemaking.
Through creative facilitation, poetry, group tasks and the use of case studies, the programme promotes a heightened awareness of societal racism and personal agency, before focussing on the development of an actionable plan for positive organisational change
"Our Diversity and Inclusion event was a huge success, we had great client discussions and it was great to see the energy in the room."
Katherine Savage, Ernst & Young
This course is available in both online webinar and in-person formats, with a minimum booking of 10 people.
As a not-for-profit organisation, all proceeds from our consultancy services are directly reinvested into our work with young people, on stage and in the community.
"(Contact) are innovative, exploratory and refreshing ... their purpose, vision and values marry exactly with those of our organisation supporting outreach into our community and supporting enterprise and talent in Manchester."
Sue Bagguley, Siemens
