This month, Al Siraat College, in collaboration with Our Race, will be hosting the much anticipated Transformational Ethical Storytelling Webinar.
The webinar is a part of the Interfaith Youth Forum project, a Victorian government-funded initiative taking a grassroots approach to racial and religious discrimination.
The webinars in this series are designed to give people the resources, skills and awareness of the ongoing issues of racial and religious discrimination and bias. They are best suited for educators, students, community groups, and anyone managing diverse teams.
Doug Cronin, director and co-founder for Our Race, comments on the webinar.
“Our Race is an anti-racism storytelling organisation which delves deep into storytelling practices,” he says.
“We take a person- and community-centred collaborative model to ensure the voices most impacted by racial and social injustices are genuinely heard.
“The key objective … is to call out racist and other oppressive practices, while calling in anti-racist ones so that we can flip the power of storytelling.”
The Interfaith Youth Forum Project is delivered by a partnership of Al Siraat College, Whittlesea Interfaith Network, City of Whittlesea, St Monica’s College, Cinespace Inc, and Our Race. It is proudly supported by Victoria Police.
