Cultural Activism: How to Make Black Histories Visible

1 Jan, 1970 at 12:00 am - 20 Aug, 2015 at 12:00 am

Please join the Centre for Research in Race and Rights (C3R) at the University of Nottingham and the New Art Exchange for the fourth in its five-part debate series, accompanying the Get Up Stand Up international civil rights project.

On August 20th at 6pm we will be exploring Cultural Activism: what black histories have been made invisible and how can we visualise them? How we can celebrate and commemorate the Black community? what is the power of art for exploring the social and political issues surrounding black history and identity? what is activist art and what does a radical engagement project look like? We’ll hear from leading black British artist Lubaina Himid, activist-scholar Professor Celeste-Marie Bernier, and Nottingham-based Engagement Curator Bo Olawoye.

Chair: Zoe Trodd (C3R)

Get Up, Stand Up! is a collaborative project between New Art Exchange and NCCL at the Galleries of Justice Museum, exploring notions of International Civil Rights with young people: a series of workshops informed a brand new gallery tour using digital technologies, showing at the Galleries of Justice from March to September 2015 (bookings via Galleries of Justice).
