June 2021 marked the third anniversary of the launch of the Decolonising the Arts Curriculum: Perspectives on Higher Education zine1.
Through the Decolonising the Arts Curriculum Zine Anniversary Series 2021, we invite you to join us to hear from key curators and contributors involved in the production of the Decolonising the Arts Curriculum zines, as well as valued members of the UAL staff and student community who are committed to driving forward decolonising work within their teams, programmes, colleges, among students and artistic practice.
Omitted & Making Histories Lightning Talks (Part 1)
This event explored the making of zine1 and its impact with a panel discussion/Q&A. Introduced by Rahul Patel, followed by presentations from Lucy Panesar, Anita Waithira Israel, Hansika Jethnani, Yasmeen Thantrey, Pinky Latt and Vikki Hill.
Curators Interviews (UAL Library Services)
The zines were launched through a series of exhibitions across UAL’s six Libraries. In the first session, Library Services staff Chris Foreman, Holly Callaghan, Viv Eades-Miller and Gustavo Grandal Montero will discuss their responses to zine1.
In the following three sessions, academics Karl Foster, Maureen Salmon and Mo-Ling Chui talked about their own personal curations as part of a call to participate in these exhibitions. These sessions will be in conversation with Rahul Patel.
Event finished, watch the recordings of the Curators Interviews.
