Diversity, Inclusion and empowering people
Diversity can be defined as acknowledging, understanding, accepting, and valuing differences among people with respect to age, class, race, ethnicity, gender, disabilities, etc.
The aim of the Together Workshops is to bring diverse communities together, give people from different backgrounds, ages and cultures an opportunity to meet, have fun and learn from each other. We run these workshops in various contexts and places nationally and internationally.
Our main focus is to help the integration of refugee communities within the local populations but we also offer some workshops to help address issues relatives to diversity in the workspace.
Since 2016, we run some bi-monthly workshops in London, get in touch if you want to take part and scroll down for dates and details!
"I'm so happy I found this community. I wanted to do some activities with refugee people but the only option was for me to be a volunteer in a workshop for refugees. It's not the same. I didn't want to help them, I wanted to meet and have fun together. Thank you Together Workshops!" Margarita.
CONNECTING & HAVING FUN
"The family atmosphere you created regardless of age and culture was superb and so precious in our region affected by political tensions. Thank you."
Cian. Mardin - Turkey - Together Workshops with Turkish, Kurdish and Syrian people
... AND A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
"I hope you reach many people and create more togetherness. Games are so much more than just games." Amar. Syrian Refugee - Turkey.
TOGETHER WORKSHOPS IN THE WORKPLACE
Why have a Together Workshop in your company?
The world's increasing globalization requires more interaction among people from diverse backgrounds and companies need to find ways to adapt to multicultural work environment.
But managing diversity is more than simply acknowledging differences in people. It involves recognizing the value of differences, combating discrimination, and promoting inclusiveness.
Our workshops will help you achieve that as well as find new creative approaches to management where people will feel heard, valued and respected.

🚨 May- Refugee Week Project🚨
During the 5 sessions in May we will co-create an installation celebrating our diversity that we will share to an audience on Monday the 25/5 (Bank Holiday). No acting or special skills needed, just the wish to spread the word that diversity is beautiful, enriching and can be a strength in our world!
NOTE: During this month of May the sessions will be longer to give us a bit more time to have fun and work on our project. It's better if you can come to the whole session but not mandatory. A lunch will be included and transport expenses are covered for refugees and asylum seekers.
(The sessions in May will be from 11-4pm)
3/05 and 9/05
23/05 and 24/05 and 25/05 (Long WE with a sharing of our work on the Monday)
