Race & the City 2 events built on the momentum and success of the previous Race & the City Conference in late 2019. Click here to view footage from Race & the City 1
This year’s series of free events has been produced to ensure we engage with a wide range of stakeholders and community groups throughout the city and beyond.
During this annual programme Bristol City Council facilitated discussion and engagement and share key learnings as well as discuss current / future priorities through the delivery of 5 specialised themed events. Ours was the 3rd such event.
Race & the City 2 - A Focus on Muslims in Bristol and their Diversity
Thursday 9th December 10:30am - 12 noon
This event will showcase the contribution of Muslims in Bristol and how Muslims are proud Bristolians. The event also aims to shine a light on the challenges that Muslims face as Bristolians and how sometimes the multiple and diverse identities of race, ethnicity, religion and gender end up being a source of disadvantage rather than a fountain of opportunity, insights and potential.
We will present case studies of Bristolians who have made a mark on Bristol despite the challenges and draw on audience participation to help find solutions to overcome the issues so we can make sure that Bristol get the best out of all Bristolians!
