Decolonising the Curriculum (Workshop)

All Equal? Youth Programme

Join us for this live interactive workshop focusing on decolonising the curriculum.

Drawing in expertise and insight from colonised countries in which decoloniality is informed by indigenist research, re-centring indigenous cultures, languages and learning methods, we will explore how we can decolonise education in Scotland and the UK.

We’re delighted to be welcoming the following guests:
Rachel Naninaaq Edwardson (Iñupiaq/Norwegian/Sami filmmaker and educator, who has worked in native educational reform across Alaska, and worked alongside native education reform colleagues in Hawaii, Canada and New Zealand)
Jane Vadiveloo, founding CEO of Children’s Ground in Australia, which defines itself not as an organisation but a 25-year approach to ensure that future generations of children are afforded equity, access and justice to determine their futures – to have quality education, health, social and economic opportunities that privilege their first culture within a global context.
Titilayo Farukuoye: an activist, organiser and writer based in Scotland. Titi is particularly concerned with race, identity, liberation struggles and the climate. Organising with The Anti-Racist Educator and other black and PoC led organisations, they strive to foster a culture of anti-racism and meaningful, productive change to dismantle white supremacy and build a world that centres black, trans, queer and disabled experiences.
Tanatsei Gambura: art and youth activist (and a member of the Take One Action team), co-founder of Ourchives, an interdisciplinary decolonial project that attempts to draw light on urgent debates on the provenance and afterlife of cultural objects from formerly colonised spaces, in Scotland and beyond.
