About this Event

Contesting ‘Race’ and Sport is a Black History Month event hosted by iRise, the Queen’s University Belfast Black, Asian, Minority, Ethnic and International Staff Network.

The event will consist of a tour of the Naughton Gallery’s third annual sports exhibition, ‘As Many Reps as Possible’, which will showcase some of the most exciting sports-influenced artworks being made today, in addition to highlighting ground-breaking figures in the sporting world including Simone Biles, Colin Kaepernick and Serena Williams. Whilst celebrating sport and sports culture, the exhibition also tackles issues around diversity and inclusion within a sports context.

After the tour, Professor Kevin Hylton will give a talk on the topic ‘Race’ and Sport in the Canada Room and Council Chamber.
