About the Events
This event is set to be a unique, honest and frank uncovering of the civic role of theatres from an empire and race perspective, and how the arts and civic spaces within it, are inextricably intertwined by the enterprise of colonialism and empire-building. We will seek to understand what legitimacy these civic spaces have in our modern, race-conscious times, and debate the very nucleus of what it means to be civic; should the word be redefined, reclaimed or relegated?
Speakers will debate:
- Civilising Civilisation: Who Defined the Civic?
- Civic & Class
- Who Controls the Space: The Illusion of Civic Spaces
- Civic Appropriation: A British Tool of Multiculturalism
This event will be recorded as part of our AHRC-funded research. The recording may be made open access for learning, publicity and/or public viewing. By attending this event, you agree that you may appear in videos and/or images of the event as an attendee.
