We're excited to bring you this campaign which aims to start conversations around race and the legacy of colonialism.
Decolonisation is a process of dismantling colonial structures, ideologies, and practices that continue to impact societies and cultures today. It involves challenging and dismantling the legacy of colonialism, which is characterised by Western-centric perspectives and the marginalisation of other cultures, knowledge systems, and histories.
Decolonisation aims to acknowledge and incorporate diverse knowledge systems and histories, empower marginalised communities, and promote social justice. This process involves a critical examination of power dynamics, challenging dominant narratives, and reimagining educational, cultural, and social practices to create a more equitable and inclusive society. Ultimately, decolonisation seeks to create a world that values diversity and recognises the contributions of all people and cultures.
We’re committed to shining a light on the diversity of our students so make sure to check out our programme of events, as well as our Culture List where you can discover a great selection of books, films, TV and more.
