GENTLE/RADICAL IMAGINATION FORUM

Gentle/Radical are launching a brand new networking space and platform for artists, thinkers, activists and cultural workers from diverse backgrounds across South Wales and beyond 19 Jan 2018

GENTLE/RADICAL IMAGINATION FORUM

Gentle/Radical's new platform will ask questions around how we go about decolonising the cultural sector and Wales’ arts scene more inclusive, representative and reflective of our diverse communities.

Gentle/Radical acknowledge that the impact of colonial structures on the imagination, the body and cultural expression, continue to inhibit the lives and contributions of diverse artists, who have yet to find themselves included or sufficiently embedded within mainstream cultural spaces.

For those affected by the structural violence of discrimination and exclusion, one of the hardest things to imagine is an emancipatory future. What would a future free of prejudice, racism, and White privilege look like in Wales? And by association, what would an arts and cultural sector look like which truly reflected the diversity of its citizenry?

The GENTLE/RADICAL IMAGINATION FORUM is a space for discussion, ideas, collaborations, speaker events, PechaKucha nights, sharings, talkings, meetings, and eatings. The IMAGINATION FORUM is open to practitioners from minority ethnic/diverse backgrounds - AS WELL AS ALLIES – in fact, anyone interested in the process of decolonising the arts is welcome.

1st Gathering of the Imagination Forum:

Saturday 27th January, 3.00pm-7.00pm, to include food

Riverside Warehouse, 56 Machen Place, Riverside, Cardiff CF11 6EQ
