IMAGINATION FORUM, GATHERING #4
We’re delighted that the Imagination Forum – our platform for decolonising the arts in Wales – will continue to deliver another five events between now and June 2018, with support from the Arts Council of Wales!
We kick start our second season of Imagination Forums at the The Sustainable Studio.
with Gathering #4 – a PechaKucha night of presentations from Welsh, BAME and — BAME Welsh! — artists, writers, thinkers, doers, makers, agitators. They will each focus on their reading of an aspect of ‘culture’ from a ‘decolonised’ perspective…
What's a 'decolonised’ perspective? 'Decolonised' can mean many things, specifically how we bring perspectives of structural power, representation and coloniality to our experience and practice of culture. How do we reframe culture — centring and bringing issues of oppression, race, class, gender, ableism, language etc – into our thinking?
We welcome an exciting line up of speakers, presenting in a ‘PechaKucha’ style format (fast-paced presentations of twenty, 20-second slides), with a line up that includes writers, visual artists, publishers, spoken word performers, community arts activists, and more…
Join us for an exciting evening of fascinating topics, rich conversations, even better company and shared community meal!
Gathering #4: Thursday 11th October 6.00pm — 9.00pm
The Sustainable Studios 7, Curran Rd, Cardiff CF10 5NE

The Imagination Forum was established at the start of 2018 as a platform and networking space to explore issues of representation, equity, decoloniality and access in and to the arts. Hosted events explored oppression and white privilege; the differences between ‘diversifying’ and ‘decolonising’; and some extraordinary presentations on decolonising music, ‘detoxing’ the museum sector and more…
The Forum is not just a space for people working in culture, but anyone who feels affected by and interested in emancipatory practices within the arts. Neither is it just a space for BAME practitoners, it’s a space for allies, indeed anyone, from any background, who is interested in a more just, accessible and democratised culture in Wales.
