WHORM is a simulation activity consisting of a series of interactive presentations which portray the origins of racist ideas and their connection to colonialism and continuing inequality.

It also challenges Eurocentic ideas of history, illustrating that all cultures have contributed to the development of humankind.

The workshop not only educates participants about racism, but provides them with an overview of ancient and modern history.

WHORM is played by 40 to 100 participants on a large map of the world. WHORM developer Tim McCaskell is our facilitator for this event.
