This Island’s Mine? Anti-Racist Workshop (8 –10 years)

This event has now passed.

In this fun, interactive and playful workshop we will look at how children can take part in discussions about anti-racism. Drawing on themes from The Tempest we will ask the question ‘How would you feel if someone comes into your space and takes the things that you love away from you?’

It’s important for young people to be able to find a way into the conversation of anti-racism, and we know it can be challenging. This workshop based on The Tempest will empower 8-10 year olds to engage with confidence.

Recommended for ages 8–10 and their families. All those attending a session must be accompanied by an adult on screen at all times.


In The Tempest, the magical creature Caliban is forced into slavery by Prospero and his daughter Miranda when they arrive and occupy the island he lives on. In our workshop we will look at how Caliban expresses his anger, speaks truth to power and stands up for his rights.

This island’s mine, by Sycorax my mother,
Which thou takest from me.

– The Tempest, Act I, Scene 2
