Event Details

How do we, citizens of the world today, explore and expand our decolonial future?

How can we imagine alternative futures and possibilities without colonial hegemony?

How are Black, Asian, Indigenous and ethnic minorities building and shaping their cultural narratives and communities outside the West?

Join us for an afternoon of performance art and presentations by seven diverse artists, activists, academics and writers on envisioning a decolonised future, exploring ideas and concepts on postcolonialism, orientalism, Otherness, white fragility, diaspora identities and mental health.


Inspired by Fanon’s assertion that when the ‘colonised revolts, it is not for a particular culture, they revolt simply because, for a variety of reasons, they can no longer breathe’.

“Challenging the colonial world is not a rational confrontation of viewpoints. It is not a discourse on the universal, but the impassioned claim by the colonized that their world is fundamentally different” ~ Frantz Fanon, The Wretched of the Earth

“Superiority? Inferiority? Why not simply try to touch the other, feel the other, discover each other?” ~ Frantz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks
