Time & Location

18 Jun 2021, 10:00 – 18:00

CCA Glasgow via Zoom

About the Event

The morning of Day 2 features a keynote address by Melanie Keen, Director of Wellcome Collection; an offline workshop by artist and researcher Ashanti Harris; and a collective mapping workshop led by BCC. Ashanti features in Glasgow International 2021 'Across the city' exhibitions programme. 

Join us in the afternoon to observe—emphasising the need for allyship and active listening—online roundtable discussions on the theme of 'Black collectivism'. Collective of Collectives is an opportunity for Black practitioners to engage in critical and nurturing conversations on building community. Our programme is based on the principles of collectivity, resource building, and regionalism.

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.

Supported by Art Fund and International Curators Forum

International Curators Forum (ICF) was founded by artists and curators in 2007 to offer a dynamic and evolving programme that responds to the conditions and contexts impacting creative practitioners through commissions, exhibitions, projects, publications and events. We provide tools and platforms for professional development and facilitate an open peer- to-peer network inviting participants to be part of a generative system of skills and knowledge transfer. Across all of our work, both critically and practically, we aim to challenge the barriers to equality and inclusivity within our industry.
