Join us during Refugee Week for a workshop delivered by HOPE not hate on how to communicate effectively about the issues surrounding migration.

Changing people’s views is rarely achieved through the medium of good rhetoric or great speeches. What we believe is based on ideas about the world that are developed over many years. We tend to seek out information that con rm our existing beliefs, and ignore information that doesn’t.

This workshop focuses on the techniques needed to bring people around to a different way of thinking, and how to effectively and respectfully navigate challenging conversations about immigration and multiculturalism.

Some of the areas this workshop will cover include:

— Who do we need to speak to? How?
— The Myth of Mythbusting and the power of narrative.
— Empathetic Listening and Socratic Questioning techniques.
— Learning lessons from Los Angeles LGBT campaigners

Suggested donation £5 — tea, coffee and cake will be included.

Places are limited to 25 so you need to secure your place by completing the booking form.
