A season exploring new possibilities for power and voice
Finding Power centres the voices of people speaking up, challenging and re-imagining established power structures.
Take a moment in Breathing Room, a collectively curated reading room of zines that offers quietly radical solutions to established power systems, led by alt-publishing practice OOMK. Then, immerse yourself in the scaled-up pages of zines with the collaborative Step-Into-A-Zine installation. Join a kitchen table organising session with Selina Thompson, or a silent WhatsApp chat with Travis Alabanza. Hear from Latinx writers on histories and futures of resistance, and young people from The 4FRONT Project on building peace. Listen to punx of colour at a Decolonise Fest gig, readings from working class writers celebrating Sabrina Mafouz’s anthology Smashing It. Find your own voice in our future-facing political writing workshops and learn about how to challenge corruption and policy with Carole Cadwalladr, Liberty and Maslaha.
The season will also feature a special edition of BSL integrated poetry variety show What Words Are Ours? from Talia Randall and an interactive lecture from Suzanne Alleyne’s timely new project The Neurology of Power.
Together with these and many more exceptional writers, organisations, artists and activists we will discover what new possibilities can be created for power and voice.
