UNCONSCIOUS BIAS
Reflecting blind spots and preconceptions
Public workshop by Paula Vaccaro (Producer Pinball London, UK)

When we create films, videos and radio programmes, we tend to reproduce unconscious biases. The good news is unconscious biases are not permanent. In fact, they are malleable and steps can be taken to limit their impact on our thoughts and behaviours.
