PIH AGM / Seminar 2017

Understanding Mixed Race

similarities & differences - identities and belonging

AGM: 12.30-13.30

Seminar: registration 13.30, start 14.00 end 17.00

Admission Fees: Members Free. Non-members £5 (PIH will invoice).

As the mixed population expands in the UK more attention must be paid to the experiences – positive and negative – of mixed race children, young people, families and couples. The UK's mixed race charity, People in Harmony (PIH), have invited speakers to present both research and personal experiences on mixed race at this annual seminar. Attendees will be able to participate in discussion on the talks and of the need to raise awareness of the issues and challenges they face.

Stephanie Guy has a personal and academic interest in mixed race studies and will be presenting some preliminary results from her research into the wellbeing of mixed race children across England, looking at the key development outcomes and risk factors. Stephanie identifies as mixed-race Sri Lankan White Australian.

Mixed race identity is a topic that will be explored by speaker Rob Worrall drawing on his own and that of two of his children's lived experiences and reflections. Rob is of mixed African and European heritage with a strong interest in identity, belonging and becoming.

Mixed race issues are often overlooked and not always understood. Statutory services need to be aware of the different needs and experiences of the mixed population to improve better outcomes for services
