Power and Privilege Training Series
Through this training series we will be exploring how concepts of power, privilege, identity and oppression intersect. We hope these training’s will help us to build stronger, more inclusive and diverse grassroots movement for change: that actively transform relationships of power that lead to oppression. We have so far co-hosted two trainings and announced a third. Watch this space, as we’re already planning a media skills training to be announced in the New Year.
‘An Introduction to Theatre of The Oppressed’
Co-hosted by Reboot The Roots, this two day course gives an introduction to Theatre of the Oppressed. Theatre of the Oppressed is a range of techniques, games and exercises, developed to support the empowerment and liberation of individuals and their communities. It is a way of analysing the power dynamics of our society and our personal relationships, based on the belief that personal problems are social problems. Learn more and book your ticket now!
We teamed up with the Racial Justice Network to co-host ‘Power, Privilege and Anti-Racist Practice‘. Facilitated by The Collective Liberation Project, participants explored their relationship to privilege, learnt about how racism functions in the UK, and left equipped with strategies to support people of colour experiencing racism and ways to work with white people to dismantle racism in your community.

We then co-hosted ‘Gender in Transition, Power and Discrimination‘ alongside Trans Leeds. Facilitated by Trans Leeds and Simpson Training, this training aimed for participants to leave the workshop as better informed allies to the trans community and ready to transform their own campaigns or movements into spaces more open, more supporting and more empowering for trans people.
