USING AUDIO VISUAL MATERIAL
Educational activities in the area of racism, anti-Semitism,
intolerance and xenophobia
Towards the end of a course, which
has explored and demonstrated peer group education
and racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance
in theory and practise. This activity provides a much
needed outlet for the creative potential of
individuals and the group.
• Video equipment
• A tested and tried video
related to the issues of the campaign
• Flipchart paper or wall
• Coloured markers
• Box with: glue, scissors,
tape, coloured paper, markers etc.
10 - 30 people
The group is told that the aim of
this activity is to create a 45 minutes programme
around racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and intolerance
issues, using video as stimulus material. Each group
(5-6) can decide for themselves for what age range
the programme is intended and how the 45 minutes is
to be used. Afterwards, the group watches the video,
participants can take notes, if they wish.
Participants have 90 minutes to discuss and to devise
the content and methodology. The final negotiated
programme is written up on the flipchart paper and
stuck on the wall. One member of the group should
remain beside it as a guide, to give any clarification
or explanation if needed. Other members then can walk
around, but will also take their turn as guide to
give everybody an opportunity to read the activities.
Other stimulus material can be used,
such as cartoons, a series of photographs or slides,
a set of posters, articles from magazines or newspapers.
The resulting programmes are often innovative, and
can be run over a whole day if possible. The activity
should be run to get feedback off the rest of the
