WHO DO WE WRITE FOR?
WHERE DOES OUR WORK LIVE?
HOW DOES WRITING LIBERATE US NOW?
The advances of digital technology and new media platforms are providing women of colour with newfound space to liberate and educate outside of traditional institutions.
Artistic work that is causing major eruptions in popular culture. Abolitionist politics that is helping to envision a world previously seen as utopian.
Jackie, Nat and Kuchenga will share how their intersectionality is a living breathing practice and why we can’t allow borders to disrupt solidarity.
Thought and action, writing and protesting. In 2017 the importance of a militant literature that reflects on our world is manifest—we need a journalism, a poetry, a theory, to articulate the world we need to exist now, and the one we want to exist beyond it. What can we learn from writing across genres by agitators, activists and abolitionists? Do new technologies of communication offer us wider horizons for forming political worlds together or merely constrain and foreclose our ways of being social?
