Racism. True Stories

Golden Cage will be launching a brand new educational programme in spring 2021, called True Stories. Students will be taken on a creative and interactive journey engaging with the true stories and life experiences from people who have encountered these themselves.

The first chapter in our series is called: Racism. True Stories.

The discussion around racism has gained widespread attention following the recent Black Lives Matter movement. Yet, for some teenagers racism may not be an issue they have experienced growing up making it harder to relate to.

“It’s not actually that bad around here.”
I’m not doing anything wrong”
“It doesn’t really affect me

These are common thoughts in relation to racism amongst teenagers. Perhaps understandably, because it can be difficult to relate and make changes to behaviour when you haven’t heard true stories from people from different backgrounds.

This is why our storyteller shares true stories about themselves and those from others in their year group. Students can develop their understanding and learn from those experiencing racism in everyday situations. 

Together we will find out what they can change and what their role is in society.

The format

  • Interactive part with our storyteller (45 mins, max 30 students at a time)
  • Individual assignments (class with their own teacher, 45 mins)
  • Covid secure: physical (one storyteller visiting the school) or virtual

No problem: we'll divide the students in smaller groups, probably per class. Please take a look at the example above.

The only thing we need is a classroom in which we can clear the room and put tables and chairs along the outside.

Please contact a member of our team to discuss the available data.

We take great care in following the government guidelines on Covid-19 to ensure the safety of all of those involved. In this particular situation: any booked performances can be rescheduled free of charge.
