About this Event
Our It Starts Here Conference returns for another year – this time revamped (and digital)!
We are excited to close our jam-packed Saturday programme with our final panel of the day, nodding to the sentiments of the late great Nina Simone: ‘An Artist’s duty is to reflect the times’: The role of art and creative resistance in our movements
In this discussion, we’ll be making connections between the role of art in our movements as a form of resistance and another expression of our struggle – how do artists reflect their times? How do we document our movements and tell our stories? How do we move people through our work? How do we galvanise the masses through what we create and how we create? These are some of the many questions to explore as well as thinking about each panellist’s own artistic practice and the motivation behind the work they put out into the world.
The panel will be moderated by Sarona Abuaker.
Sarona Abuaker is a poet, artist, and educational outreach worker. Her mixed-media essay ‘Suture Fragmentations – A Note on Return’ is published with KOHL: A Journal for Body and Gender Research, and her poems are featured in Berfrois, MAP Magazine, and The 87 Press Digital Poetics series. She is currently writing her debut collection ‘Why So Few Women On The Street At Night’ (to be released by The 87 Press in 2021), a queer phenomenology of collective Palestinian futurisms and memory building layering visual cultures, essays and poems, to approach territories as different as Turtle Island, Brockley and Palestine. She is based in London.
