Location: Zoom (zoom.us)
For this YPIA Cardiff event we're joined by Ele Hicks from Diverse Cymru for an interactive workshop all about unconscious bias. This workshop is an introduction to the topic. It will include a chance to raise your questions, talk about your experiences and discuss the topic. Through this event we want to help you start to understand what ‘unconscious bias’ is and give you the foundations to recognise and overcome your own unconscious bias. With the hope of making arts organisations, venues and the industry, a more open and diverse environment to work in. Key discussion points:
