Caribbean In/Securities and Creativity: Diasporic Dialogues

Sunday 25 June - Monday 26 June 2017
Caribbean In/Securities and Creativity: Diasporic Dialogues is a two-day event encompassing a conference as well as a free art and research exhibition which speak to the theme of Caribbean and diasporic dialogues, and the role of creativity in negotiating the in/securities surrounding such dialogues.

The event is a result of a collaboration between the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (CCDS) at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Caribbean In/Securities: Creativity and Negotiation in the Caribbean (CARISCC), an international research network funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which seeks to explore the interactions between the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the negotiation of risk through creativity, in a Caribbean context.

Planned activities include an exhibition launch, keynote speakers, artist-led discussions, research panels and paper presentations distributed across the two days. There will be a small fee for conference attendance for catering purposes, but the research and art exhibition will be open to the public free of charge.
