What does it mean to be a Black millennial in Britain today? The political landscape in Britain has changed significantly and since 2013 there has been an upsurge of creative, radical, grassroots, and independent platforms taking space and providing a voice and representation for young black women in particular. We feel a new approach is needed to confront and challenge the growing oppression and marginalisation of the Black community, in all its variety and heterogeneity. We are bringing together some of the brightest young minds in Bristol to discuss questions like: - How can we liberate ourselves through education and decolonised histories? - How can we empower each other through starting and supporting Black-owned businesses? - How can we build as a community, whilst still dissecting our differences and the way those may impact our lived experiences in Britain? - What role can the arts play in our liberation, the archiving of our stories, and re-shifting the narrative, especially as Black poets, writers, filmmakers, and artists continue to shake the status quo online and offline? - How can we build a meaningful and inclusive movement? The event will consist of a 45-minute panel followed by a workshop/networking session where we delve further into these important topics and think about how we can work together better! Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/bristolitnb Or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org About the MAIN ‘Re-imagining Black Britain’ Conference: The 'Re-imagining Black Britain' Conference is a one-off collaboration between Black British platforms and organisations No Fly on the WALL, Sassy Tees, We Are Superwoman and Cultured Lens. The conference aims to bring together a wide range of attendees, speakers, facilitators, and performers for a day of inspiration, celebration, collaboration, and re-imagining. With panels exploring identity and Afro-futurism, arts and culture, business and enterprise, and of course networking and collaboration, as well as workshops hoping to inspire attendees to move ‘from idea to action’, we aim to provide attendees with the resources, energy, and space in which to Re-imagine Black Britain and our individual as well as collective place in it. The political landscape in Britain has changed significantly, particularly since 2013, when various grassroots and DIY organisations began. Since then there has been an upsurge of creative, radical, grassroots, and independent platforms taking space and providing a voice and representation for young black women in particular. We’d also like to highlight that we have made a conscious decision to hold the conference in Birmingham, rather than London, in the spirit of ‘Re-imagining’. We hope that decentring the capital and bringing our collective energy to a vibrant and upcoming city like Birmingham, which also has a significant population of people of Afro-Caribbean descent, will send a strong message about community building, intersectionality, and new approaches. The 'Re-imagining Black Britain' Conference will take place at Centrala Space, Birmingham, on Saturday 27th January 2018. You can find tickets for the Birmingham conference here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/re-imagining-black-britain-conference-2018-tickets-41598470144 ... See more
