We all have cultural stories and sites of privileges and oppressions; some stories are made visible and some remain purposely invisible or silenced. This workshop offers a reflective space to name and explore political and social structures of domination that shape and inform our personal and professional selves, frame our activism, and inspire possibilities for social justice action.

This workshop aims to:

  • Explore and politicise dominant structures and discourses that reinforce white supremacy culture
  • Reflect on the context and structures of privileges and oppressions and how they shape our cultural stories
  • Explore daily acts of oppressions or ‘microagressions’ and how these are enacted interpersonally, organisationally and systemically
  • Develop macro and micro strategies of anti-oppressive practice to challenge and interrupt dominating structures of oppression
