Refugee Week 2019: 'You, me, and those who came before'
In collaboration with Counterpoints Arts
Explore lost histories, undocumented stories and personal studies of some of the communities that form an integral part of this country's fabric. In collaboration with The Laundry Arts, Belly Full will act as a channel for the recounting, preserving and ‘lifting up’ of black and brown histories. Join artist Moza Almatrooshi as she presents ‘Praise Hiya’, a performance motivated by the persistent erasure of femme herstories in ancient Arabian narratives. Writer and Co-founder of ‘Plantain Papers’ Lemara Lindsay-Prince will be in conversation with visual artist Rochelle White, following a screening of her film ‘Brother Will’ – a contemporary lens into black legacy. The evening will rest on the performance lecture ‘Migrant Testing’ with artist Sabrina Mumtaz Hasan, that interrogates databases collated through tests undergone at refugee camps between 1975 to present day.
