THE BOAT - SYNOPSIS

THE BOAT - PROCESSING QUESTIONS

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION: THE BOAT WORKSHOP

Have we achieved diversity? Does discrimination still exist? In this participant- centered, interactive workshop, we will use a boat, index cards, and masking tape... it's about them and it's about us. Come take the plunge and learn how misunder- standing "diversity" divides our multiracial, multigender, and seemingly disparate communities. We will look at discrimination outside ourselves and within our com- munities. Leave your guilt and fear at the door. This workshop is about developing practical responses to difficult situations.

EARLIEST MEMORIES

IF YOUR FRIEND THOUGHT

HETEROPHOBIA QUESTIONAIRE

HOMOPHOBIA 101

An introspective, challenging, and engaging safe space where earliest memories, fears and apprehensions, and self-initiated disclosure will form the medium from which we will explore the root causes of homophobia and heterosexism and the all-too-often failure to recognize their interconnection to sexism and misogyny.

GRID EXERCISE

THE GRID EXERCISE

What is identity? Is identity important? using colored dots, an 8-foot Identity Chart, participants will introspectively map out what is important, unsafe, safe, and power- ful for themselves in order to better understand issues of power and privelege... "label" vs. discriptions... how does our own perception of self impace the ways in which we work, address issues of cultural competence, and grow our abilities and skills in examining and challenging identity destruction and individual, community, and social disempowerment.

THE COLOR LINE

THE COLOR LINE

Do you treat people according to the color or shade of their skin? In these times when increased diversity would suggest that interracial dating, trans-racial adop- tions, and multiracial families are more accepted, what impact does the media's promotion of beauty standards have on how we feel about our own and other's skin color. This audience -driven workshop promises to explore how we "see" skin color and how our experiences, past and present, inform a more challenging and layered understanding of wht racism and skin color have to do with dividing or building community.

RACE TO THE AMERICAN DREAM

RACE TO THE AMERICAN DREAM

The "class" closet - why is class background never really discussed? What is the relationship between race and class? Come join us in opening the last closet door... let's bring "class" back into the classroom. In this interactive workshop, a color line and class disclosure will provide a unique opportunity to understand ourselves and the impact of class and race on our work in People of Color, White, and multiracial communities.
