Minority Groups and Alternative Cultures

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel is aimed at encouraging honest and open discussion of ethnic tensions, cultural differences, and incidents of racism in alternative subculture spaces.
With the audience, we will talk about why minority groups may shy away from alternative-culture groups and events, any relevant examples of causes that you might wish to share, either in observation or as a minority, and about how these differences can be resolved in order to create a safe space for ALL people present in these types of groups or events.
