Within the framework of a themed exhibition or event, people are encouraged to write a question which concerns them on an envelope, and to place that envelope in a designated space.

STEP BY STEP IMPLEMENTATION

Other people are then able to respond to the question by writing on cards, which they then place in the envelope. Examples we saw at the Migration Museum included: “Why are mixed race people considered to be black?” “How do you deal with racial bullying?”

SUGGESTIONS FOR THE FACILITATOR

Difficult to practice this with people who don’t know your local language. But good and easily adaptable to almost all sorts of people (even kids, by just adapting style and code) Language barrier could be an issue.
