TO BE RESCHEDULED: Cultural Conversations: Cultural Conversations: “Say His Name – Healing from our Collective Cultural Trauma in the age of George Floyd”, Session Three (Online)
Session Three: Developing Cultural Sensitivity and Understanding of Identity
What privilege do you carry in your backpack? This workshop will help participants identify how privilege may have unknowingly played a role in their life and cause them to have a greater understanding of internalized oppression and the ways it hurts everyone.
Dr. Patterson has worked with Folkmoot for three years to engage the Folkmoot community with resources that have helped to deconstruct our deeply held cultural beliefs that cause unhealthy, sometimes racist behaviors. Dana’s approach is of acceptance and building new awareness, where participants are welcomed to make mistakes and examine their preconceived thoughts and feelings. Online classes will be participatory, interactive and a safe learning environment for people of all backgrounds. Cultural Conversations will be expanded in the spring to include in-person training events for the community, student groups, businesses and corporations.
