How to create a Critical Diversity Literate Art School, in which students and teachers of all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, genders, sexualities and (dis)abilities feel treated with equity and are supported to explore their full potential? This is the question at the heart of, and one of the main goals of, the project 'Brown Bag Lunch' (BBL) presented by WdKA Makes a Difference. We are thus interested in rethinking pedagogy, in increasingly diverse learning environments within the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, through various programmes and methods. Our concern as educational professionals is that traditional academic environments are inadequate in serving this diverse body of students. In response we decided to create a space for interested teachers in which informal academic exchanges could occur.
