Challenging hate crime: voices of Gypsies and Travellers
Wed 23 November 2016, 11:00 – 16:00 GMT
This is a drop-in event, no booking required and is open from 11 to 16 hrs on the day.
Join us as we use sound, performance, and archival sources to explore the issue of hate crime against Gypsies and Travellers. In this immersive long-form performance piece, verbatim theatre techniques animate academic and community research on hate crime; we examine the fear it engenders and the hope needed to overcome it. Performances continue throughout the day; drop-in at any time. The work has been developed by members of Leeds GATE and students from the University of Leeds, together with artists Vanessa Cardui and Sara Allkins, using archive material at Leeds GATE and Leeds University Library Special Collections.
This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities.
