Common Histories: A Workshop on Slavery and the Creative Arts

Event Date: 21 October 2017

Saturday 21 October 2017, 10.30am-3pm – The Bluecoat, School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BX.

AHRC ‘Translating Cultures’ theme, Centre for the Study of International Slavery and UNESCO Chair in Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts are delighted to present a workshop on coming to terms with our common histories.

The workshop explores the ways we can deploy the Arts as a way of creating new spaces and opportunities to remove the discomfort of historical and modern injustice and inequalities that are a result of slavery, colonialism – and the reluctance to discuss these.

The workshop will be led by Professor Kofi Anyidoho (University of Ghana), Chirikure Chirikure (Zimbabwe), Tawona Sitholé (poet in residence, University of Glasgow) and Gameli Tordzro (Pan African Arts Scotland).

Tea and coffee will be served from 10.30am and lunch will be provided.

Advance registration essential. Book your place here.
