Part Two of Our Three Part Equality Season

With recent global elections and racial conflicts in communities, it is clear that xenophobia and racism remain current issues that need to be addressed. However, we’re so often unaware of how racism functions in contemporary British society or how to uproot it in our daily lives.

We are being joined by Camille Barton, who will explore the idea that racism is worst in countries such as the USA. She will speak about how this may also be a source of apathy and confusion when navigating these issues in a UK context. This talk will explore strategies to dismantle racism with a compassionate approach, utilising examples from Camille's time living and engaging in social justice work in the USA and the UK.

Camille Barton is a movement artist, diversity consultant, producer and the founding director of The Collective Liberation Project, an organisation that designs experiential workshops to teach people about oppression and equip them with the tools to transform racist and sexist behaviour. Camille has worked with clients including Sisters Uncut and SOAS.
Having studied International Relations at The University of Sussex, Camille understands global power dynamics but is most passionate about how the fusion of art and politics can lead to social change. While living in The USA she was inspired by training in restorative justice and peer counselling which supported her work as a youth worker in West Oakland. Improvisation, prefigurative politics and Afrofuturism are at the core of Camille’s art practice.

Prior to establishing The Collective Liberation Project in 2016, Camille worked in Arts and event production for over five years. She production managed projects at a range of events and festivals including Burning Man, Glastonbury, Nowhere, Boomtown Fair and Symbiosis. In 2016 Camille co-produced The Sisterhood, Glastonbury festival’s first women only venue, and incorporated a strong focus on intersectionality and providing a platform for women of colour.

And if that's not enough, we'll be singing our hearts out, hearing stories from members of the community, drinking a vat of tea/coffee and eating a heck of a lot of biscuits afterwards too.

BSL interpretation will be provided.

We can't wait to see you there and have fun celebrating life with you all!
