The process

First project meeting in Iceland

The first project meeting was held in Reykjavík, Iceland in October 2017. Most of the partners had already worked together before and so we could more or less dive straight to work.

On this first meeting we agreed on project organization and distributed responsivities. As all partners have experience of giving anti-discrimination or anti-racism training, we used the opportunity to share our knowledge and experiences in the field of training.

We also started discussions about what kind of support material would be most useful for a trainer when facing situations where the participants are obliged to join the training and may be resistant to the experience.

Second project meeting in Dortmund

On 12th – 14th of June we had our 2nd INAR meeting, organized by Chancengleich in Europa e.v. in Dortmund, Germany.
This time it was not just a meeting but we also had our trial course module with expert trainers attending from the partner organization for feedback and evaluation. The course was filmed by a professional filmmaker, Ross Bull and will of course be published here when its ready.
We are very thankful to the expert trainers for their input and feedback which will help us create support materials for all trainers and teachers who want to add training on everyday racism and discrimination to their training offer or just to prepare for their already existing training on the topic.

During our trial training in Dortmund we had some experts from our partner organizations. Here an interesting blog from Zandra, one of the Scottish trainers: http://www.crer.scot/single-post/2017/06/27/CRER-in-Dortmund

After the trial module, we had another day of filming and in the end a good project meeting with discussions about the previous days and the next steps in the project. We are on good track: modules almost ready, handbook on its way and film being edited. We look forward sharing the outcomes here when its ready.
