Black History Month Celebrations

Back at the end of October we invited a range of speakers to join us to listen, discuss and share Scottish based projects and artworks as we celebrated Black History Month 2020.

Speakers ranged from researchers, artists, curators and project facilitators. Some even span all of these disciplines. Each speaker gave a presentation on their practice and we had some fruitful Q&A at the end. You can watch the recording below of the presentations.

Wezi Mhura is the creative producer of the Black Lives Matter Scottish Mural Trail along with many other projects. To find out more about the Mural Trail go here  and to donate to the go fund me campaign, go here.

Ashanti Harris is a multi-disciplinary visual artist and researcher working with dance, performance and movement, alongside sculpture, film and installation. To find out more about Ashanti and her practice you can visit her website here 

Veronique Lapeyre is the founder of Zanana Project that supports the creative ambitions of Black, Asian, Mixed Heritage + People of Colour in Scotland and beyond. To find out more about Zanana Project visit here. 

Tiffany Boyle is one half of Mother Tongue, which is a research-led, independent curatorial practice working locally and internationally, formed in 2009. To find out more about Mother Tongue and explore their projects you can visit the website here.

Here is the recording of the presentations from the event on 29th October 2020. We hope you enjoy the special taster of a new work form Ashanti Harris.
