An interactive artwork of black radical memorabilia.
This workshop invites active participation to explore questions and research concerning ‘Being Human’, starting with notions of ‘radical New Cross’. You will be invited to bring along a small example of black radical memorabilia and some words/ thoughts/ ideas to create a collective installation. We plan to move through conversations and exchanges that reconfirm our humanity. A collaboration between Joan Anim-Addo at the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies and artists Lauren Craig and Ego Ahaiwe Sowinski, this workshop captures ideas that we explore and will make available online at both X Marks the Spot and the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies.
