We are people of the global majority! So, why are we the minority?
Whiteness and Eurocentric ideo­logies are often held on a pedestal, and we find our­selves con­stantly oppressed through fake supe­riority com­plexes in order to create fake infe­riority com­plexes around the globe. This is done in order to maintain white supremacy and attempt to undermine the dignity, inte­grity and lon­gevity of the majority of the world’s people.

Having been born, raised or residing in a pre­do­mi­nantly Euro-centric society, one may inherit biases that affect how we per­ceive one’s self-worth and those of other eth­ni­cities. Being able to unlearn and achieve equality will take genera­tions, but learning to embrace uni­queness and indi­vi­duality can begin now – within our­selves.
For there is no admi­rable self to aspire towards, rather a self to love with all the com­ple­xities.

Throughout the wor­skhop we aim to discuss topics such as the expe­rience of alie­nation and inter­na­lized racism ope­rated by the White gaze. By sharing stories we’re striving to find a safe space to heal tog­ether and empower each other!

Venue: Aquarium am Südblock (Skalitzer Str. 6, 10999 Berlin)
