Vada That

Friday 9 November 2018
Time: 6-9.30pm
Venue: Seminar Room 3, V&A
Tickets: £5 (incl. refreshments)

Through film, photography, drawing, poetry, literature, and creative hands-on activities, we’ll be exploring the intersection between adversity, reinvention, legitimacy, self-love, and ‘sartorial’ assumptions. Artists will share their eclectic perspectives on memorial, ancestry, enslavement, migration, matrilineage, religion, inheritance, landscape, excess, inspiration, and the reclamation of identity. The ten artists ‘taking the stage’ are:

1. Victoria Adukwei Bulley, poet, writer and filmmaker
2. Momtaza Mehri, Young People’s Poet Laureate for London
3. Charmaine Watkiss, visual artist
4. Linett Kamala, artist and educator
5. Jacqueline Crooks, author
6. Marcia Michael, photographer
7. Sheba Montserrat, poet and spoken word artist
8. Ros Martin, award winning playwright, poet, and artist
9. Lula Mehbratu, singer, songwriter, and MiMu Glover
10. Bumi Thomas, Multidimentional artist

Includes light refreshments

**Please note the workshops: ‘Self Portrait’ and ‘Love Letters’ start at 17.00 (running time 75 minutes)**
