This production workshop aims at developing and producing the educational videos that will be used in the massive open online courses for the youth and youth workers on addressing invisible racism with youth work in the context of non-formal education. Invisible racism is regarded as the subtle, subversive, and deliberate informal and formal mechanism that allows unequal access to rewards, prestige, sanctions, status, and privileges based on racial hierarchies.
Though invisible racism does not carry the weight of law; traditions, norms, and customs uphold, justify, and obscure its operation. For instance, a white European is expected to outperform many tasks, develop specific skill, excel in certain environments compared to an African migrant. Invisible racism serves to explain such obvious racial outcomes as natural, normal. Alternatively, any deficiencies, lack of achievements, or failure to perform by an African migrant is similarly obscured, misdiagnosed, and misrepresented as a group failure.
So, invisible racism operates and continues to remain deeply embedded in the social, economic, cultural, psychic, and political fabric of European societies. By creating open educational resources for youth and youth workers, youth work becomes an educational approach that can address invisible racism within the broad community. After this worksop, partners will have short and developed educational videos addressing two forms of invisible racism: microaggressions and internalised racism.
