Hate Crime Awareness Week Workshop with Andrew Ogun

Llantarnam Grange Arts Centre is delighted to share a newly commissioned workshop by Rapper, Poet, Writer, Creative Director and BLM Gwent organiser, Andrew Ogun.


Commissioned as part of Hate Crime Awareness Week, Andrew Ogun takes us through a number of writing tasks and scenarios, in which we are invited to explore the different perspectives on hate crimes, learn about positive steps to take in reaction to hate crime and turn the brainstorming session and scenario exploration into a creative output, such as a poem, or a spoken word piece.

10 October – 17 October marks Hate Crime Awareness week, a national week of action that encourages local authorities, key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together to tackle local hate crime issues. Hate Crime has a fundamentally damaging effect on entire communities, creating traumatic experiences for individuals and marginalising people based on their disability, race or ethnicity, religious belief, sexual orientation or gender identity. This has no place in society, and in Stop Hate UK’s 25th anniversary, we are proud to support this UK-wide cause.


To participate, simply download the associated worksheet here and watch Andrew’s video below.


This workshop has been made possible with funding from Torfaen County Borough Council.

Victims or witnesses of hate crime can report directly to the police. If it’s an emergency call 999 or 101 for any non-emergency or you can report to Victims Support at any time by calling 0300 3031 982.
