Black Parenting Matters: A workshop for parents & carers of black children

2:00 pm - 6:00 pm | 23 November 2019
The Body & Soul Charity | £35

Organised by Stillpoint Spaces London Black Parenting Matters (BPM) is a workshop within a supportive and creative space, where parents and carers (whether ‘actively’ parenting or not), are invited to bring some of the hopes, fears, challenges and opportunities of parenting to the table.

This is for you whether you are parenting black babies, children, teenagers or young adults.

This is a facilitator led workshop in which the activities will provide opportunities to breathe, think, talk, listen, imagine and be.

We will consider and explore how:

  • We navigate the challenges of parenting black children in anti-black environments
  • We can share, boost and prioritise self-care strategies that support our parenting
  • We imagine and create futures that encourage connection rather than exclusion, and embrace a spectrum of the black experience and identity
  • We continue to develop practices of parenting that support both individual and collective well-being

Facilitators:

Hakim Taylor – Qualified teacher, mindfulness facilitator, parent and child emotion coach, and special educational needs coordinator

Foluke Taylor – Counsellor/psychotherapist, Writer, parent

This event is in partnership with The Body & Soul Charity

Ticket prices for Children under 12 £10 (+BF), Early Bird £35 (+BF), Stand/Exhibition £29 (+BF), Standard £45 (+BF) available from eventbrite
