Description

National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2019

Engaging in Challenging Conversations about hate and discrimination

Practitioners’ Event, 12 – 3pm, Wednesday the 16th October: APOLOGIES FOR CHANGE FROM 14TH.

Voluntary Action Leeds, Stringer House, 34 Lupton St, Leeds LS10 2QW

In partnership with Safer Leeds and Stop Hate UK, Voluntary Action Leeds (VAL) will be hosting an event for people working to combat hate crime. The aim of the meeting is to bring together a diverse range of practitioners who are involved, or are likely to be involved, in community conversations about hate crime and discrimination.

During the event you’ll hear about training that has taken place in Leeds to help people engage with ‘Challenging Conversations’; practitioners’ experiences of using these and other dialogue-based methodologies (including Critical Thinking and Community Philosophy); a handbook that has recently been produced to help people facilitate challenging conversations; and proposals to create an informal ‘Community of Practice’ group to provide on-going mutual support to those working in these and related contexts. There will also be an opportunity to experience and ‘have a go’ with these methods, and time for discussion about any issues, thoughts, ideas, and anxieties you may have, or challenges you face.

Lunch will be provided and you will receive a copy of the handbook.

Please contact Graeme Tiffany at graeme.tiffany@gmail.com if you would like to make a short contribution as part of the event.
