About this training

The project aims to teach to identify and combat discrimination and stereotypes, to resist the undesirable suggestion of the acceptability of discriminatory processes and stereotypes through the arts, to distinguish the types of discrimination in life and in the arts, and to help reduce such phenomena as “discrimination” and “stereotypical thinking”.

The participants will learn how to:

  • look for manifestations of discrimination and biased thoughts in works of art;
  • develop analytical thinking, synthesis, research and others; distinguish the types of discrimination, its open and closed manifestations, ways of response and influence;
  • work with generally recognized films, TV series, books, paintings and musical compositions where there is hidden or overt discrimination and stereotypes;
  • overcome the barrier of age, racial, ethnic, gender, religious and class discrimination; improve the discriminatory situation in the arts.
