This afternoon symposium brings together researchers and practitioners whose work engages with the themes of Afrofuturism, Indigenous Futures, and other emerging areas of science-fictional/future-orientated cultural practice in which people of colour, indigenous cultures and non-Western subjects take centre stage.
Speculative design will be addressed in terms of its ability to raise problems, rather than solve them. As a tool for speculation, it opens up spaces for presentin...g problems, to model alternatives, and to generate imaginative responses. It will be explored in relation to cultural practices including art, comics and science fiction writing.

In November 2017, the Difference Goes Speed Dating event hosted a series of encounters between artists, students, academics and industry specialists engaged in lens-based media practices. Using speed dating as a format the speed-dating event aimed to survey the ways in which lens-based practitioners explore the concept of ‘difference’ in their practice.
Whether focusing on themes of identity, the visual or non-visual representations of race, gender, sexuality, class, language..., power, desire and aesthetics, this one-day symposium, will bring together a series of presentations and ‘unfinished’ in-conversations, between artists discussing current and alternative ways of picturing difference in contemporary lens- based practices and beyond.
Keynote: Dr Leon Wainwright, author of Phenomenal Difference: A Philosophy of Black British Art (2017).
Guest artists: Ajamu, Akiko Takizawa and Azadeh Fatehrad.
Artist participants: Pamela Breda, Clare Charnley, Beth Fox, Sabrina Fuller, Grace Gelder, Carl Grinter, Lena Heubusch, Caroline Molloy, Ekene Okobi, Viviana Troya and Lyu Wen.

Can experiences and displays of shame work productively to retain our outsiderhood and resist homo-normative assimilation into wider cultures or is the integration of LGBT communities a necessary journey to full citizenship and equality?
Shame on You is a day-long symposium that draws together performance artists, psychoanalysis academics and novelists to discuss shame, sexuality and identity. Focusing on the experiences of socially marginalised groups, our conversations will cover shame/pride movements within LGBTQ communities, the persistent shaming of female bodies and combatting of female sexuality, and the role that class, state and power should play when theoretically mapping the internal dynamics of sh...ame.
The symposium will address questions such as:
What are the connections of visibility to pride and shame?
How do the intersections of race and class shape notions of shame and pride?
What aspects of homosexuality are rendered silent by pride and how can shame address dissident gender identities?
Are male and female bodies inscribed with shame differently?
Why is female sexuality still a dominant source of shame in our communities?
Are pride movements the best means of combatting the shame experienced by marginalised groups?
Full Price £8
As part of the symposium we will host an aural presentation by Shame Chorus, a research project made in collaboration with the London Gay Men’s Chorus, the Freud Museum and Susie Orbach and funded by Arts Council England.
Convened by Jordan McKenzie (CCW) and Akosua Bonsu (UCL).
This event is presented by the Camberwell, Chelsea, Wimbledon Graduate School Public Programme.

Join us for a lively panel discussion considering the influence of the Bauhaus on art and design in the UK. We will think and work through ideas and aspects of the Bauhaus pedagogy and consider the ways in which it might relate to the contemporary practices of teaching and art making.
This panel discussion follows two days of intensive workshops led by our international partners from Albers Foundation and Bauhaus Dessau. It is an opportunity for anyone interested to become in...volved in the first stage of a two-year research and events programme in celebration of the centenary year of the Bauhaus in 2019.

Curated by Professor Carol Tulloch.
'Still' is an autobiographical display based on a ‘curatorial conversation’ between the artist and designer Jessica Ogden and Professor Carol Tulloch.
Ogden was born and raised in Jamaica. She studied art in the America and England where she established her fashion label, Jessica Ogden, in 1993. Since 2006 Ogden has worked with fashion house A.P.C. in Paris. In 2015 Ogden returned to live and practice in Jamaica....
Featuring a selection of objects from her archive of designs and contextual resource collection, Jessica Ogden: Still will reflect on her practice, as well as familial and cultural influences, to present a new understanding of her work. The exhibition space, a vacant shop in Church Street, Marylebone, will also be a working studio hosting weekly workshops where, for example, Ogden will encourage local residents to explore their making skills to produce a community piece that narrates local and personal histories.
