As part of Cultural Exchanges 2022, Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage introduce their National Lottery Heritage Fund project, Unearthed: Forgotten Histories. This launch event offers an opportunity to hear more about the programme and the strategies surrounding mapping a Black presence in the Midlands, by maintaining living archives and collecting oral histories. This roundtable discussion will open up dialogue with the sector of the importance preserving, curating, and accessing these forgotten histories. This exchange of ideas channeled through the ThinkTank will be hosted by Pawlet Brookes and Mistura Allison.
As part of Unearthed: Forgotten Histories, this roundtable discussion gathers international Black women academics with the vision to build and sustain meaningful intergenerational debates surrounding heritage. This roundtable exalts the work of leading pioneering ‘visionaries’ examining how we might build community and collective strategies in Academia.
Opening the conversation Dr Anita Gonzalez, Co-Lead of New Racial Justice Institute (USA).
