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 paper
• 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
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 group.
