Posted by fp74 at Dec 04, 2017 10:05 AM |
An interactive workshop/symposium where speakers, activists, artists and scholars from near and far were invited to take part in sharing their work on struggles and resistance related to gender inequality, racism, colonialism and oppression.

Reconnecting Struggles was a one-day workshop organised by University of Leicester PhD students, Sara Thornton, Mirjam Twigt, and Mette Edith Lundsfryd. The symposium explored ongoing struggles related to issues such as colonisation, gender inequality and racism. The symposium was held at the Attenborough Arts Centre on 5 June 2017 and sought to create time and space to (re-)connect and unite struggles and activists.

Since the event Sara Thornton and Mette Stendevad have been working on a webpage and a video to document the talks and interactions of the day. If you missed the workshop but would still like to benefit from the knowledge and experiences shared on the day, or if you would like to re-experience the day please visit the webpage and find the videos here.

The filming and editing was kindly made by Ambrose Musiyiwa and CivicLeicester.

Videos can also be accessed via the playlist on YouTube.
