How do we create an inclusive and egalitarian society in which diversity is not merely tolerated or managed but fully harnessed as a thriving lived experience for enrichment of everyone involved & benefit of the society as a whole?
BEYOND MULTICULTURALISM, a 6-week online course, takes participants through the process of critically evaluating a spectrum of 'ethos' of societies — in terms of the ethos equality & inclusion & how people interact with one another — empowering participants with SOCIAL CONSCIOUSNESS to be able to SEE, with a critical distance, WHY where we stand now is still a problem & HOW we can move beyond where we stand now towards creating a truly multicultural society & HOW we can become active agents of social transformation in the way we choose to create our everyday lives. Through the workshop, participants would gain:
Capacity to zoom out & view the society with a critical distance;
Social consciousness to be able to SEE, with a critical distance, WHY where we stand now is still a problem;
HOW we can move beyond where we stand now & HOW we can become active agents of social transformation in the way we choose to create our everyday lives;
Critical thinking, interdisciplinary thinking, design thinking & values education in direct engagement with urgent issues of our time;
Intercultural communication skills that will equip you with the capacity to discuss these issues with sensitivity & incisveness
Participants are led through weekly modules with engaging lectures & readings as well as stimulating rounds of discussion. For institutions of different scales interested in integrating this workshop into their curriculum, please use the inquiry form below.
