Join our new social integration project with free events!
Do you sometimes wonder how to make society more equal? How we can break down barriers between migrants and locals? Who is responsible for creating these changes? We're offering young people the chance to gain an insight into social integration, media portrayals of migrants and social policy making through FREE interactive workshops with expert speakers and the chance to understand how we can change society for the better!

16 August, The Baytree Centre, SW9 6AE
The third session teaches participants how to discuss relevant, and sometimes sensitive issues, in non-confrontational ways. We will welcome Raphaella Gabrasadig, a young lawyer born into a Sudanese refugee family and with expertise in media framing; Journalist and expert Aidan White from the Ethical Journalism Network; and UCL researcher Aysun Kiran, who will discuss how minorities are depicted in film with a focus on Turkish people, who represent a significant and often marginalised minority in several European countries.
Language as Power
14 July, The Baytree Centre, SW9 6AE
This workshop will allow young people to step into the shoes of migrants and refugees coming to this country and understand the challenges that they face when they don't speak English. It will include an insight into who has power to make decisions about how social issues are addressed in our communities, how to engage with those people, and practical activities in central London.
21 July, The Baytree Centre, SW9 6AE
Pride and Prejudice explores the topic of identity, and encourages young people to understand the complexity of our own identities, as well as how easy it is to reduce others to a much simpler, and often disparaging, set of characteristics. We will host Sagal Bafoe of the Anti-Tribalism Movement and Shefali Roy, a recent TedX Oxbridge Speaker, who will share their own experiences and help us to see how we can identify, address and overcome our own biases and help others to appreciate who we are.
22 July, with Xenia Women and Theodora Cadbury , Hackney Museum
This workshop gives young people the opportunity to spend time with migrants, sharing a picnic lunch whilst getting to know each other and learning things about each other.
