Multicultural diversity

 

Why do we hold prejudice against other people? Prejudice is a sign of fear (or in other words, lack of information). We fear what we don’t understand. So how can we help in the process of overcoming fear? Through trust and understanding. How is trust created? Honesty, lack of lies, personal interaction or experience, first-hand information.

Multicultural diversity previously interpreted by artists and designers:

The most common aspect that has been interpreted to represent inter-cultural issues is Skin color. I find that a rather interesting cliché, showing that looks play a huge role in what we think and they also make it easy to categorize and therefore, judge or praise.

We might not accept a nation’s religious views, or mistrust a nation due to a previous negative experience, but we would put it under the category of color as it makes it easier. However, I believe that what’s underneath matters a lot more.

 

Some research: visual examples of anti-racist campaigns aiming to cultivate cultural tolerance:
