[Event] The 7th Annual Huntley Conference – Arts & Activism: Culture and Resistance Feb 18th


The seventh Huntley conference will explore the use of the Arts as a form of cultural resistance by political and cultural activists Jessica and Eric Huntley. The Huntleys took the interests and struggles of black people in the UK and made them central to their campaigns and publishing. They encouraged and published the works of black artists through books, posters and greeting cards, in addition to supporting ventures such as the Keskidee Centre and promoting musicians, dancers and actors through cultural events.

For the first time the event will incorporate in parallel, Step Forward Youth! The First Huntley Youth Conference.

The August 2011 Riots – what happened & why?
Come and be inspired by Professor Gus John, Symeon Brown, El Crisis, Akala, Kai Rutlin and others. Step forward and join in the debate. This runs at the same time as the main conference from 10.30am. Feedback to the main conference in the afternoon.
