How to Have Antiracist Conversations

& The Antiracist Heart

Book illustrations, book trailer and logo design.
Commissioned by Roxy Manning in 2023.

Can a person be both fierce and compassionate at once? Interrupt hateful or habitual forms of discrimination in new ways that foster deeper change? Directly challenge racist speech or actions without seeking to shame the other person? Dr. Roxy Manning believes it’s possible—and now you can learn how.

In How to Have Antiracist Conversations, Dr. Manning lays out a framework for fiercely authentic dialogue: one in which we refuse to give up on the possibility of transformative human connection within ourselves, with potential allies, and with those whose words and actions create harm. Drawing on Dr. Martin Luther King’s vision of Beloved Community, community members, activists, professionals, DEI consultants – anyone interested in creating an antiracist society –  will be empowered to create change and equity through fierce yet compassionate dialogue challenging racism and the impact of systemic white supremacy beliefs and practices.

Insights – Meaningful Youth Political Participation in Europe

Illustrations for the trainer toolkit.
Commissioned by the Council of Europe Youth Partnership between 2019-2023.

Learning mobility in the youth field is increasingly recognised and present in European programmes and in the activities and initiatives supported by the European Union, the Council of Europe and other institutions.

Providing a meeting place for people from different environments and communities, learning-mobility programmes draw attention to values, trigger reflections on them and stimulate questioning and critical examination. If prepared and facilitated well, these experiences can contribute to preparing and supporting young people and adult learners to be active in society and to be agents of change.

Insights – Meaningful Youth Political Participation in Europe (2021).

Supporting policy makers and practitioners to facilitate, support and promote meaningful political participation of young people.

Young people’s political participation has many diverse forms; it can be conventional or unconventional, and include activities such as voting, being a member of a political party, serving on a local youth council, engaging through a youth organisation or taking part in online political activism, boycotts or a protest movement. This edition of Insights “Meaningful youth political participation in Europe” examines the key concepts and aims of youth political participation, types of democratic environments and various mechanisms of participation within the context of shrinking space for civil society, rapid digitalisation, advancement of populist ideologies, increased inequalities, a rise of global youth movements and a health pandemic.

Both conventional and unconventional types of participation are explored throughout the publication, reflecting upon young people’s participation skillsets, the cultural sensitivity of participatory opportunities and intersectionality. The authors conclude with a set of recommendations for the youth sector to support the development of a more open, transparent and accessible democratic environment for young people.

Authors: Ondřej Bárta and Anna Lavizzari.
