Imagination Forum #1
27th January 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pmFREE
All are invited to the Gentle/Radical Imagination Forum – a brand new networking space for discussion, ideas, collaborations, speaker events, PechaKucha nights, sharings, talkings, meetings and food…
This Platform is open to all practitioners from minority ethnic/diverse backgrounds – AS WELL AS ALLIES – anyone interested in exploring what a decolonised cultural sector might look like in Wales is welcome. The impact of colonial structures on the imagination, the body and cultural expression continue to inhibit the lives, careers and contributions of diverse artists, who have yet to find themselves included or sufficiently embedded within mainstream cultural spaces.
Gentle/Radical does not want the future to look like the past.
For those affected by the structural violence of discrimination and exclusion, one of the hardest but most necessary things is to be able to imagine emancipatory futures.
What would a future free of prejudice, racism, and White privilege look like in Wales? And by association, what would an arts and cultural sector look like which truly reflected the diversity of its citizenry?
