Who is in the classroom ? A workshop towards inclusion and diversity

Who is in the classroom ? A workshop towards inclusion and diversity

This workshop is for people who are curious about inclusive classrooms.

It is for those who are already allies* and for those who wish to become allies, who seek to educate themselves and need resources in order to educate others. In short it is addressed to students, teachers, researchers, administrators, cleaners, technicians and managers alike, at all those who together build institutions. The workshop is collectively designed and facilitated by the “Who is in the classroom?” working group, in the framework of the collective research and study programme “Teaching To Transgress Toolbox”.

This workshop forms part of the Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership “Teaching to Transgress Toolbox *An ally is a person who stands up for others to proactively build inclusion in our workplace.

The workshop will be online and in English ! Here is the link : https://us02web.zoom.us/j/8325760563?pwd=b2Nmc3hkR3YvOE1nZkxyWmQxd0Zjdz09

About the workshop

The objective of this event is to bring together a space in which we can reflect, share and exchange our own experiences on inclusion and diversity in our context.

During this event :

  • the purpose of this event is creating understanding for people who don’t necessarily fit into the normalized world of a classroom
  • we will learn and discuss new approaches like pronoun round, access needs, assumptions and allowing mistakes.
  • we will share contexts, experiments, discussions, as well as hands-on guidance material.
  • we will understand how important it is that everybody present is seen and supported in their needs.

About TTTToolbox

Teaching to Transgress Toolbox (TTTT) is a collaboration between HDK-Valand Academy of Art and Design in Gothenburg, École de Recherche Graphique (erg) in Brussels and Institut Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (ISBA) in Besançon to collectively address questions of inclusive learning and teaching in a time when tendencies towards polarisation and discrimination in wider society have a perceptible influence on attitudes and behaviors within education in general, and in our classrooms in particular. In an attempt to counter contemporary threats to diversity, questions about pedagogical inclusivity have risen to the forefront. Intersectionality asserts that oppressions (based on racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, etc.) are interconnected and cannot be examined separately from one another. Critical intersectional feminist pedagogies have, by now, been proven to provide valuable conceptual and practical tools with which to generate inclusivity. This is particularly true in the field of art, where teaching tends to be open to devising and applying new critical frameworks, tools of analysis and creative practices. The programme seeks to foster inclusive pedagogies and aims to question the supposed neutrality and equality in schooling systems, as well as production and consumption in the arts. The programme is open to people from various backgrounds, fields, abilities, gender identifications, sexualities, ethnicities and religions to collectively explore intersectional and decolonial approaches that can activate and help spread embodied and theoretical knowledges in arts pedagogy.

*The title is inspired by bell hooks’ book Teaching to Transgress: Education as the Practice of Freedom.
