Event description

Description

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 45minute panel followed by a workshop/networking session where we delve further into these important topics and think about how we can work together better!

The main ‘Re-imagining Black Britain’ Conference itself will take place in Birmingham and the aim of the conference is to, in light of the sobering events of 2016 and 2017, focus on how Britain’s Black Community can move forward in a progressive and solution-focused way, together and collaboratively.
