  • The Fabric of Memory (Yehudit): an invitation for a new ritual
  • Friday 22 November, 3pm – 8pm
  • Free
  • 'The Fabric of Memory' is participatory performance by artist Nir Segal. Segal’s work focuses on collaboration and dialogue: this piece is a public invitation to bring and discuss different pieces of fabric, clothes and other materials and the memories we associate with them. The event is a durational performance during which the public is invited to bring in fabrics to be ironed or folded by performers, thus enacting a new ritual. The event will include discussions with academics from the University of Leicester whose work addresses the themes of memory, heritage and ritual, speaking alongside textile conservators. The event will reflect on how we remember, how clothes can contain deeply personal memories, and the everyday rituals of memory and remembrance.

  • Pay What You Think
  • Since leaving home in Birmingham to study at a college in Derby on a course he didn't really want to study in the first place, Rinkoo Barpaga has moved around England a lot, determined to find somewhere to settle. Along the way, he has encountered both racism and discrimination, and as a result he has been constantly asking himself the question, "where do I belong?" A British born sikh with strong family ties in India, Rinkoo discovered at the age of three that not only was he required to tick the box, 'ethnic minority,' but also the box, 'Deaf.'
    As part of International Day of People with Disability 2018
  • Made In India / Britain is an insight into one man's life as he tries to fathom out exactly who he is and where he belongs, as he delves deep into past experiences to try and find clues which will ultimately help him realise his true self and a home he can finally call home.
