Artist Barby Asante invites educators to come together to think about how to open up conversations about race and racism in the classroom.

How do we as educators develop discursive and creative opportunities to support understanding about why Black Lives Matter? How can we create safe spaces for students from POC backgrounds to feel confident enough to speak their experiences, verbally or creatively?

Using the mixtape as a method, Barby invites participants to source online images, news stories and videos, in order to generate multi-layered narratives. Through collecting and curating digital material we will explore truth and fiction, creating space for POC and Black experiences and histories and exploring different notions of cultural production.

Cracks in the Curriculum aims to bring artists and educators together to discuss ways of bringing pressing social issues into the classroom. This workshop runs in parallel to Arthur Jafa: A Series of Utterly Improbable, Yet Extraordinary Renditions. Taking place in both the exhibition and studio the workshop will comprise of readings, critical discussion and experimental digital collage. Cracks in the Curriculum: Countless Ways of Knowing is devised for anyone who works with children or young people and wants to join an active discussion about issues of race and racism in the classroom. Materials, resources and refreshments are provided free of charge.
