MEDIA IN MY MIND: EYES WIDE OPEN DISCUSSION

5 March 2016, 2pm – 3.30pm

Does social media influence racial discrimination in today's society? Can social media be used as a tool to combat prejudices? Using social media as a focus, activist Josephine Taylor presents an introductory exploration into cultural representation. Come share your thoughts in this informal discussion based workshop as we analyse how social media influences and changes our perceptions of race, heritage and identity.

'As the founder of Eon's first Black and Asian Minority Employees Network, I understand the importance of representation. I have been affected by how those I identify with are represented at both ends of the spectrum of good and bad in my life. This discussion is an invitation to take a look at a snapshot of what I have seen over the last 2 years in the realms of social media. You may arrive with your eyes wide shut, but it is my hope with the help of my colleagues Chanese Edward Clarke and Natalie Dickson you will leave with your eyes wide open......'
