BSL Interpreted Event

Audio description provided

 

Tuesday 30 July 3.45pm to 9pm

 

This event will create a space for fresh engagement, new thinking and debate around intersectionality*, equality and diversity in relation to organising and activism, and celebrate everyone’s participation in the London LGBTQ Learning Network since it was launched in 2010.  This is the final Learning Network event that will be funded by the original Big Lottery funded In Our Name project.  The event will be chaired by Marai Larasi, Director of Imkaan, and will bring diverse contributors including activists, organisers, academics and artists together around intersectionality, with presentations, performance and multimedia contributions.

* intersectionality is a concept used to describe how oppressive institutions (racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism, etc.) are interconnected; also ‘it seems to be true that centres of creativity tend to be at the intersection…where beliefs, lifestyles and knowledge mingle and allow individuals to see new combinations of ideas with greater ease’ (Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)
