Rent Behind Racism: Challenging the Way We Think

The information panels for this exhibition.

The Behind Racism exhibition and its tour are presented by:

Canadian Race Relations Foundation

Explore the mental processes that can help you think and act quickly, and learn how they can lead to dangerous biases, racism and discrimination.

Discover how interference, bias, blindspots and other cognitive mental processes can help—or hinder—your ability to understand the world around you.

This thought-provoking exhibition asks visitors to consider what would happen if everyone could better understand the mental processes that lead to inequity.

Together, could we unearth the roots of racism in ourselves, alter our behaviours and effect greater change across our communities and institutions?
