1.) Movie + Discussion
Screening movie The Help, drama film directed and written by Tate Taylor, and adapted from Kathryn Stockett’s 2009 novel of the same name. The film and novel recount the story of young white woman and aspiring journalist Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan. The story focuses on her relationship with two black maids, Aibileen Clark and Minny Jackson, during the Civil Rights era in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi. In an attempt to become a legitimate journalist and writer, Skeeter decides to write a book from the point of view of the maids—referred to as “the help”— exposing the racism they are faced with as they work for white families. Movie The Help is perfect to share awareness about
racism, class and race issues. After the movie we will provide a discussion.
2.) Comics for Equality
The goal of this creative workshop is to draw own big comic and every participants will create one scene. At first the participants will learn about the topic racism and try to draw their own experience in a short comic. The participants will work in cool new area and followed by relaxed music.
3.) Racism behind the stories
We will start with a special exhibition followed the idea of “living library”. Instead of persons –which will be the books – the participants need to discover stories about racism .
