Saviorism, Equity, and Me

This workshop uses theatre techniques to explore White Saviorism and imperialist praxis prevalent in international education and expatriate communities. Grounded in the traditions of US Black radicalism and the work of public intellectuals such as James Baldwin and bell hooks to deconstruct white supremacist capitalist patriarchy, this workshop asks: how do everyday practices exhibited in our school communities and expatriate cultures collude with and perpetuate inequity, neocolonialism, and imperialism on the African continent?

This personal development workshop seeks to call in allies invested in equity and justice work to reflect, engage, and process common practices found in expatriate culture(s) and within our school communities with the intention to increase accountability and collective action.

Participants dialogue workshop themes through collaborative, creative, and reflective theatre techniques pulled from Theatre of the Oppressed, a Popular Theatre style used to explore dynamics of power, oppression and privilege. Theatre of the Oppressed founder, Augusto Boal envisioned theatre as a rehearsal for reality and a means to transform a society that could help “build our future, rather than just waiting for it.”

No prior theatre experience is necessary to participate.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will reflect and identify everyday white supremacist capitalist patriarchy specific to their personal contexts.
  • Participants will strategise personal and collective action to disrupt, build, and increase accountability in their personal contexts.
