Radical Parenting: Unpacking Racism


Talk | August Inc.
Spring Summer 2019 Program

There are so many things that are pertinent to working toward racial justice - raising conscious children is one of those things. Ongoing discussion within our circles revolves around the space non white children take up in white spaces, how we can all actively challenge and talk about racism in child appropriate ways and how to build strong resilient children who can face and fight injustice.

This panel discussion will be an honest and open conversation about how we can collectively challenge the status quo while raising the next generation of resilient advocates.

Meet the panel...
Courtney Glazbrooke
Wiradyuri woman and Director of Towri MACS, a Multifunctional Aboriginal Children’s Service in Bathurst. A passionate advocate for social equality and inclusion in early childhood.

Lucie Cutting

Janine Barr
South African Australian primary and secondary educator with a passion in inclusive education, diversity, identity and special education.

Dr Red Ruby Scarlet
Activist, early childhood teacher-researcher, consultant, artist, academic and Founding Chair of the Social Justice In Early Childhood Foundation.

The panel is open to anyone responsible for or thinking about taking care of children. We will look at how to explain privilege, teach tolerance and dismantle bias curriculums to build a framework for raising conscious children.

We won't come up with all the answers, but we hope to start a conversation that is a catalyst for genuine change and solidarity.

The second half of the event will be open to the audience, you are encouraged to submit your questions.

The world needs a new generation of intersectional people so, let’s do the work together…
