Watch the recording of our workshop with Prof. Sharon Stein from the University of British Columbia that took place on January 14th 2021. “Developing Stamina for Decolonizing our Networks.” The GDC has set a high bar for itself with our goal of building a truly international network characterized by relations of trust, reciprocity, and openness. We invited Prof Sharon Stein to do this workshop with the GDC to work on having have common ground from which to continue our work and a set of common tools that can guide our conversations and interactions moving forward.
Filmmaker Abdelkarim El-Fassi, who produced the video, explains: “I’ve never felt this uncomfortable while directing a video. Sure, it’s totally unethical and pedagogically irresponsible, and yet as a society we’ve practiced this on the macro-level for years. We’ve been talking certain communities into feelings of collective guilt for years. This has to stop, otherwise the problem will fester on for generations to come. I don’t want my nephew Hamza, who can be seen in the film, to be held accountable for matters that have nothing to do with him. He is a third generation Dutch-Moroccan. There is no justification whatsoever for him being treated differently from his white peers.”
