Talks


Vanessa Kisuule and Eva Lazarus will be joining Munroe Bergdorf and Chidera Eggerue (The Slumflower) for this year’s Black History Month flagship panel event. Our remarkable panel will be discussing the challenges and injustices they face as black women in the creative industry – an industry facing a diversity crisis across gender and race.

Part festival, part interactive art exhibition, all conversation and mostly a massive experiment. From 8th until 11th November, hundreds of artists, scientists, djs, activists and creative technologists will gather at Arnolfini to design a new world with kindness at its heart. Everyone is invited to play.
