WORKSHOP: FEAR OF BLACK SPACE
In the making of Fear of a Black Space, Ian Sergeant and Black Sauce Collective ask a series of questions using the establishment and abandonment of the Muhammad Ali Centre, Hockley, Birmingham as a motif. What did the building represents to the local community? Why does the space still cause anguish within the “black” community? How do you as an artist, your project, venue or organisation contribute to shaping the identity of a community, neighbourhood or the city?
Join Black Sauce (Ian Sergeant, Bobbie, Gardner and Faisal Hussain), David Osa Amadsun (Goldsmiths/Project U.N.C.L.E), Josephine Reichert (Ort Gallery), Yinka Danmole (The Loft) and others to share your experience of how your arts, cultural and regeneration activities are helping to transform the image of the city of Birmingham.
This event is presented as part of 'FILM/ FEMINISM/ IDENTITY/ ACTIVISM: LOOKING OUT FROM THE CCCS', a month-long season of exhibition, provocations and events investigating the impact of Birmingham's Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS).
