About the Event

We are considering the idea of ‘meandering networks’ as a starting point to think through how we connect and come together as cultural workers across the four nations. The first day is closed-door for Black practitioners with a curatorial practice and the second day is open to the public. Our programme is based on the principles of collectivity, resource building, and regionalism.

For Day 1, which is closed-door, we are inviting Black practitioners working with contemporary art based across Scotland, and the UK to share a moment of peace, rest, and reinforcement between each other on an international platform. We are not striving for ‘newness’ but to shift attention and form connections between what already exists/is emerging, with the aim of moving Black practitioners from the peripheries by sharing and decentralising resources and knowledge. We view our stories as oral archives, our experiences as resources and aim to voice and share this as a national resource. 

Meandering Networks, Mapping Nations embodies slowness as a state of mind through doing less better, taking comfort in the unknown, and focusing on a process-driven approach to public programming.

About the organisers

Meandering Networks, Mapping Nations is curated by the Black Curators Collective (BCC) and coordinated by collective members April Brown, Chloe Austin, Jade Foster, Khadea Kuchenmeister, Natasha Ruwona, Nikita Gill, Sabrina Henry, Umulkhayr Mohamed, Ifeanyi Awachie, and Yewande YoYo Odunubi.
