This is an online panel discussion featuring three of our Cultural Educators: Amina Zakki (Cultural Educator for Moroccan stories), Alma Richeh (Cultural Educator for Syrian stories), and Claudia Fox Tree (Cultural Educator for Arawak/Native American stories). Guardian Adventures founder and CEO, Meghan Gardner, will moderate the discussion. There will be a process for attendees to submit questions to the panel.
The discussion will focus on the important and timely topic of Cultural Appropriation & Misrepresentation in media and education and the role these actions play in the perpetuation of racism. These terms will be defined by each panelist as they discuss the impact these obstacles have had in their pursuit to find understanding, acceptance, and equality.
The panel will also talk about measures that can be taken on both a personal and societal level so as to avoid cultural appropriation as well as being conscious of the misrepresentation of cultures.
Attendees are encouraged to be logged in and ready to begin no later than 11:00 AM.
This event will be recorded and redistributed later, through the Guardian Adventures YouTube Channel, may also appear in a documentary being developed by cinematographer Sam Ho, as well as possibly being referenced in research by Alex Corbitt, who is working on his Ph.D. at Boston College regarding literacy in education.
