Balansekunst invites you to check your privileges!
* The workshop in-person, but requires you to use your own smartphone to answer reflection tasks anonymously.
Acknowledging your own privilege doesn’t mean “I’m a problem”, it means the system is a problem. Everyone has different identities, and you may encounter prejudices and advantages based on these. For example, you may face prejudice as a bisexual, but if you are white and do not have disabilities, you will at the same time have privileges by virtue of this.
Privileges indicate that people who are within the norms do not have to face certain prejudices. That doesn’t mean you never face resistance. This means that you will not encounter additional resistance because of your skin colour, sexual orientation, gender expression, gender identity, class background, age, religion, or functional ability – and more.
During this workshop we give some examples of small and large barriers that many do not have to deal with, but which others experience. Here you can check which privileges you have or do not have, and reflect on what we can all do to ensure that everyone has the same opportunities and freedoms.
The workshop is led by Eivind Breilid, who is a mediator at Balansekunst.
