This live workshop style online event will give a platform for 5 artist, writers, actors and performers to share and discuss an item which they have created in the response to the theme of eugenics. These items will then be collected in our Virtual Museum. Each speaker will talk for 10 minutes about their artwork, film or piece of writing and why this has been selected for the Museum. There will then be an opportunity for those attending this event to ask questions about the work or the wider themes of eugenics in both it’s past and future form. Confirmed guest contributors include:
Tanvir Bush, novelist, photographer and researcher
Esther Fox, visual artist, museum facilitator and researcher
Liz Crow, artist-activist working in film, audio, text and performance
Nabil Shaban, Jordanian-British actor, writer and theatre director
Emmeline Burdett, writer and academic
This event is part of the D4D mini festival 2-9 July 2021, which celebrates the end of a 5-year research project investigating the evolving ways in which we as disabled people express, perform, experience and practise ‘community’. Funded by the AHRC’s Connected Communities stream, D4D consists of a number of different contributing projects exploring diverse areas such as robotics, the arts, education, employment, genetics and gaming.
