Anti-racism and mental health resources: practising cultural exchange
Ideas for cultural exchange activities in schools and what to keep in mind when planning them.
The meaning of the phrase 'cultural exchange' is when people from different backgrounds trade ideas, feelings, stories and customs.
In a school context, cultural exchange may refer to:
- A school trip to another country
- Visiting a cultural venue, like a museum, that has exhibits and artefacts from different cultures around the world
- A culture sharing event
Undertaking cultural exchange work in your school will help you to better support the mental health and wellbeing of your school population.
