Course description

Decolonising the Arts Curriculum: Omissions of Histories and Narratives with Rahul Patel

This workshop is part of WPF Therapy’s 2020-2021 CPD Programme themed around ‘The World We Live In.’

What does it mean to ‘decolonise the curriculum’ and how do we go about it?

It is clear the tragic killing of George Floyd by the police in Minneapolis, was not a singular event but is part of a long history of police killings and disproportionate deaths of black people in police custody in the USA and Britain.

The Black Lives Matter movement in the US, UK and globally has responded with an inspiring mass movement, in solidarity with the family of George Floyd and challenging systemic racism across the world.

The UK is not innocent, and our educational organisations are part of this systemic racism. We must do all we can to resist this and make fundamental changes to eradicate this deep structural racism. These changes should also take place within our curriculum which at the top and within dominant pedagogy, at best, reflects ‘a-historical’, ‘neutral’ and of ‘universal values’. Decolonising the Curriculum movement interrogates the ongoing impact of legacies of slavery, colonisation and imperialism on knowledge production and contextualisation of all knowledge within historical, geographical, cultural frameworks.

The Decolonising the Arts Curriculum: Perspectives in Higher Education zines 1 & 2 provided a platform for both students and staff at the University of the Arts London to understand, navigate and provide these frameworks. Rahul Patel co-curated both zines and addresses critical issues at the heart of the decolonising the curriculum within mental health and wellbeing.
