Many people are expressing shock and outrage regarding incidents of racism and hate right here in BC. At the same time, while we know that victims or targets of racism can be traumatized by the inaction of bystanders, most people freeze up when they witness incidents of racism, largely due to a lack of skills. With the generous support of Vancouver Island University’s Faculty of International Education, the Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research BC (SIETAR BC), in partnership with the BC Council for International Education (BCCIE), presents:    Anti-Racism Response Training (A.R.T.)            Wednesday, June 24 | 10:30 am – 12 pm or Wednesday, June 24 | 1:30 – 3 pm   What can I say or do when I hear racist or discriminatory remarks?What are my response options when I witness discriminatory behaviour?How can I participate in creating a safer community for everyone? The A.R.T. Program, developed by Dr. Ishu Ishiyama – and recently enhanced by your facilitators – is a skill-based training that uses a witness-centred approach. In this webinar, we will review four levels of witnessing: (1) dis-witnessing, (2) passive witnessing, (3) active witnessing and (4) ethical witnessing. We will then focus on four key categories of active witnessing, and participants will have the chance to learn and practice a wide range of anti-racism responses, as well as share some of their own effective strategies for responding to racism. This training is designed to encourage participants to shift from being frozen or silent bystanders to becoming active witnesses. In doing so, we can disrupt racism and build a safer and more inclusive community. Facilitators/Presenters: Naomi Wolfe and Thanh Tazumi These events have limited capacity and spots are filling up fast. Some spots are reserved for VIU Community members on a first-come-first-serve basis.
