BLACKNESS IN ART
Blackness in art is being celebrated more than ever. But in understanding the black experience we often don't talk about the emotional weight that comes with sharing these stories. Are we telling these stories in the right spaces and for the right audiences? This conversation will discuss the importance of safety and support when creating work, particularly when the story may be hard to share. This panel will also explore concrete ways of how we can engage with positive representations of the black community within art. And with that in mind, we actively encourage those who do not identify as black to attend. Whether you are black or white, together we can move towards a collective healing.
For this event, The Mono Box will be joined by Cherrelle Skeete (Fun Home), Shereen Jasmin Phillips (Head of Neighbourhood Theatre, Young Vic), Kobna Holdbrook-Smith (Tina: A Tina Turner Musical) and Daniel Bailey (Director, Unknown Rivers).
Tickets are £8 (£6 for Under 30s).
If you buy a ticket to the second event on Sunday 8 December SPEECH SHARE: LIVE with Simon Russell Beale, Gina McKee and Joseph Marcell, the combined cost with be just £25 (£15 for Under 30s).
