Social Inclusion in Education – Brazil

February 23, 2009

Project Description:

To implement educational policies for equality in gender, race/ethnicity and sexual orientation in the classroom, by sensitising teachers towards the issues of discrimination and encouraging a positive appreciation of diversity. 

 Learning Point: 

The success of the project can be attributed to having approached it from the point of view of the participants (teachers), considering that they first have to deal with their own preconceptions (prejudice) before being able to deal with discrimination in the classroom.

Writers forum at Jebel Barkal – Sudan

February 23, 2009

Project Description:

Work with Sudanese artists and writers to help them to understand and overcome the conflicts which have scarred their country for the past fifty years.

Learning Point:

Resonance; the careful choice of location resonated with the participants and later with the media to ensure wider impact for the programme. The facilitative approach, providing opportunity for engagement amongst Sudanese artists created a means to create a positive experience of the UK while focusing on Sudanese needs rather than on the UK.
