Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This will be a creative workshop where participants discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion in the media, and in groups, create film-scripts or outlines of social media campaigns on an issue or topic which showcases a marginalised group, or an issue often kept in the shadows.
Sharing our unique stories and seeing others who look like us in the media fosters a sense of belonging and connection that’s vital for us to feel included, appreciated and validated.
Through this workshop, participants will have to challenge their engrained biases, think deeply about real people who are marginalised and kept in the shadows and be better sensitized on how to be more accepting of situations and people who are different from them in looks, beliefs and ability.
