Featured Event – CIAD Exchange: COLOURISM: Part 4, Soothing our Skin.

Consolidating previous events this year of Colourism parts 1-3, this workshop will allow participants to work through tackling colourism issues openly, in a friendly and supportive environment.

Colourism Part 4: Soothing Our Skin is an SOS to ourselves and the wider community around the issues of race and shadeism. This workshop seeks to allow people the space to work through the issues of colourism that have been discussed and try to understand how black people and other people of colour might attempt going about repairing the damage colourism has caused.
