Culture Unwrapped: Being Brown

New Art Exchange

Skinder Hundal, CEO of New Art Exchange, will moderate a discussion about BBC Radio 4's controversial broadcast of Enoch Powell's infamous 1968 "rivers of blood" speech. It was broadcast in full for the first time on 14 April 2018 to mark the 50th anniversary of the far-right politician's controversial address which flared hatred against immigrant arrivals.

The broadcast took place at a sensitive time as the government introduces integration strategies across urban centres in the UK. Panellists will include:

Dawinder Bansal is an award-winning theatre producer passionate about telling hidden stories to amaze, entertain, inspire and provoke audiences. Her most recent artist commission was for the National Festival of Making called 'The Making of a South Asian Wedding'
