Decolonising Our Minds: Expressions of disenfranchised youth – being BME in London
Our art is drawn from lived experiences and resistance is spawn from the expression of these experiences. Expressions of disenfranchised youth will be an evening of various art forms performed by Black Minority and Ethnic artists. From poets to hip hop artists, film-makers and live artists.
These artists will be expressing how expensive it is to be poor in a city that is gentrifying at a cataclysmic pace. They will be articulating what it is like to live on the periphery where the state wages war against you for being a person of colour.
Not everything that is faced can be changed; but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
James Baldwin (As Much Truth As One Can Bear, New York Times)
