Why Don’t You…? by Queer Media UK

Why Don’t You…? at The Sharp Project will have a workshop on podcasting facilitated by Chrystal Genesis from Stance & Emma Goswell from Gaydio Radio.

The festival asks the question: Are you growing increasingly frustrated by the under-representation of many voices in society - large groups of people growing up having no value attached to their perspectives - so why don't you decide to do something about it?

Hear how Chrystal launched Stance Podcast on Trump's Inauguration day with the aim of giving a larger array of people the same amount of space, creativity and intellectual weight as others, and how Emma, Gaydio’s Drive Time presenter, this Autumn, is set to launch her own podcast series – Coming Out Stories.

Black Mother preview plus Q&A

Ahead of release on 2nd November, Dogwoof Films are pleased to announce a series of London preview screenings of BLACK MOTHER: For More Details and Tickets: Click Here

Join Chrystal Genesis from Stance Podcast as she hosts a Q&A with Khalik Allah following the screening of his new film Black Mother. This special screening and Q & A will give you an insight into a visionary that has been described by the New Yorker as 'one of the most original documentary filmmakers working today',

Part film, part baptism, in Black Mother director Khalik Allah brings us on a spiritual exploration through Jamaica. Soaking up its bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, Allah introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible portraiture. Immersed into the sacred, the profane, and everything in-between, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history but existing in the urgent present.

Stance Podcast previously interviewed Khalik Allah in Episode 18 of their award winning podcast series.

City Design for Diversity at Tate Modern

  • Tate Modern, Southwark Room, Level 5 - Blavatnik Building (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Historically, London has been hailed as an exemplary city in designing for diversity and integration, in part due its patterns of social housing. However, following the Grenfell tragedy, we must ask: is London really designed for everyone? Decisions about the design, planning and management of the cities we live in has a significant impact on our feeling of belonging and security, social mobility and real or imagined barriers between communities. Stance Podcast investigates whether or not inclusive design can help reduce xenophobia and inequality, as well as foster a shared sense of community in London today. This discussion is part of symposium with COMPAS in collaboration with Counterpoints Arts and The Open University as Tate Exchange Associates. The Counterpoints Arts Who Are We? programme runs from 22nd - 27th May.
