Networks, Friendships, Histories, Futures

In parallel to The World that Belongs to Us, symposium explores some of the key concerns within the exhibition. Themes include; entangled South Asian diaspora networks from the 1980s through today across the UK, USA and Canada; the importance of collaboration and friendship across time and space; interrogating histories and archives; and queer and feminist world-building.

Saturday 25 November, 10.30am – 4.30pm

£8 / £6 concessions. Includes lunch and refreshments.

Curated with Aziz Sohail, The World that Belongs to Us exhibition brings together a constellation of intergenerational artists, largely from the South Asian diasporas of the UK, USA and Canada.  These diverse practices share a common thread of blending autobiography and activism, though together, they activate a wide range of conversations around a number of themes including community and belonging, storytelling, archival histories and narratives and the fusion of the traditional and the contemporary.
