Container Presents: Taking Up Space - Conversations About Digital Activism

Live stream

Please note: This live stream took place in Nov 2020

Join a brilliant panel of artists and activists to explore the mainstreaming of allyship and how it impacts radical change-making.

Hosted by Roseanna Dias, a Bristol based producer, curator and facilitator interested in creativity and social change, the panel will be asking can you occupy social media platforms for social activism? What does the new wave of instagram friendly images and explainers do for a movement?

Guests include:

Danielle Brathwaite-Shirley, an artist working in animation, sound, performance and video games to communicate the experiences of being a Black Trans person.

Grace Kress, the founder of Shelby X Studios, which merges art and activism to build community, create educational resources and share accessible information that counters harmful mainstream narratives.

Josephine Gyasia a Creative Producer and spoken word artist who, as part of Rising Arts Collective’s Whose Future campaign, has recently launched a video and call to action entitled ‘What are your plans?’.

This event is presented by Container, a new online magazine exploring different perspectives on creative technology. Launching this November, find out more @Container_Mag on Twitter and Instagram.

This event will have BSL (British Sign Language) interpretation throughout.
