Black Atlantic is a weekend of public programming where participants are invited to consider how far racial equity and inclusion can serve as creative tactics for the imagination of just and sustainable planetary futures here and now. The weekend will be a celebration of such tactics in all their diversity and will combine free events as well as this ticketed programme at The Market Hall in Devonport.
On Sunday 26 November the morning will begin with a Deep Listening workshop by Ximena Alarcón-Díaz from The Center for Deep Listening at 10am at the Mayflower Steps. Participants will then take part in A Silent Walk following a route designed by members of the Open City Night School and ending at the Peace Garden on Plymouth Hoe, where the weekend’s proceedings will be drawn to a close around midday.
Black Atlantic is part of Open City, a season of decolonial art and public programming organised by Radical Ecology through autumn 2023 with partners across South-West England and in the context of the exhibition Against Apartheid at KARST.
