26 March - 7 August 2020
A season exploring new possibilities for power and voice—in isolation.
Our original Finding Power season centred the voices of people speaking up, challenging and reimagining established power structures. In a time that sees us occupying a uniquely isolated landscape, we have been working with our season contributors to bring you an online programme.
Finding Power in Isolation is a season direct from writers, artists and activists whose voices are now more important than ever. The programme launched with If I Feel Lonely Maybe U Do 2?, a live online performance from Travis Alabanza and Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley and has been evolving week-by-week in tandem with our own collective experiences.
Join us for a vital online session with Liv Wynter on pooling resources and mapping out care during lockdown and a live streamed gig of solo performances from punx of colour hosted by Decolonise Fest. We’ll also be presenting podcasts from Suzanne Alleyne and Talia Randall, co-commissioned articles from gal-dem, Skin Deep and Selina Thompson, future facing writing resources from The Literary Consultancy, a 4-week Science Fiction as Activism course with Ama Josephine Budge and a vital online conversation on language and power with English PEN.
Stay tuned our social media pages to keep up to date.
