For those who campaign for and believe in creating a fairer society, the word integration isn’t new. In fact, we appear to have gone full circle, harking back to an approach that was used in the 1960s.

This workshop aims to introduce a ‘new’ approach to creating a more harmonious and progressive society: interculturalism.

brap are running a free workshop to help people to understand what interculturalism means in practice and how it could be used to deliver equality.

The workshop is free to voluntary and community organisations, frontline public sector workers, activists, and campaigners who are interested in exploring this approach in more detail.

As it’s a brap event, you’ll know it will be fun, it will stretch your thinking and it will help you to explore how you might use interculturalism in your work.

Aims of the workshop:

•understand the problems with previous approaches to community relations, such as multiculturalism and community cohesion

•understand the principles of intercultural practice

•develop the skills and knowledge to deliver intercultural projects

•understand the key success factors of intercultural activities
