Black Cultural Activism Map launch

  • Things to do, Cultural centres

Time Out says

Going to the launch of a map might not sound like a banging Saturday night, but this isn’t your average atlas. The Stuart Hall Foundation is joining forces with artists and activists to immortalise the unsung achievements of British people of colour online. This launch night is an IRL celebration of black and brown cultural resistance in the UK over the past 50 years. As for the map? Its completed version is set to be unveiled in spring 2019. 

For now, you can get your head around the concept with film screenings, poetry and panel discussions, all held inside Central Saint Martins’ Platform Theatre. Showcases by collectives Voices That Shake! and Reclaim will span storytelling and film while black women and femmes’ vocal group the Nawi Collective will be on hand to raise the roof with ancestral song.

London-based print zine Skin Deep, which champions diverse voices, will unveil its latest issue, ‘Movements’, while spoken-word collective Globe Poets will explore identity, connections and memories of south London. Looks like your Saturday plans are mapped out.
