Black Consciousness Workshop
This 1-day workshop will take place on:
Saturday 19 February 2022
- Duration: 1-Day, 9.15am – 4pm
- Format: online, Live on Zoom
- Fee: £75
Open to all, this enlightening workshop uses the work of thinkers such as Biko, Fanon, and Garvey to consider the possibility of psychological decolonisation.
In the first half of the workshop, participants will dive into the colonial world, dissecting topographies, history, language, education, and religion to understand the psychological manifestations of colonialism as proposed by some of the leading thinkers in Black liberation thought.
By considering the prevailing Black experience in Africa and its diaspora, students will then explore the necessities and practicalities of deploying Black Consciousness programmes in their own communities. Exploring tools such as Paolo Freire’s conscientisation, Steve Biko’s positive psychology, and Edward Blyden’s centring of esteem, participants will learn how various thinkers have proposed for individuals and communities to begin the process of psychological decolonisation.
Join us for what promises to be an engaging and enlightening workshop!
