‘Negotiating Caribbean In/Securities through Creativity: A Research and Art Exhibition’ is being launched at the British Library Knowledge Centre today and tomorrow (25th-26th June, 2017).

The launch of this online CARISCC exhibition is taking place alongside Caribbean In/Securities and Creativity: Diasporic Dialogues, a two-day conference which speaks to the theme of Caribbean and diasporic dialogues, and the role of creativity in negotiating the in/securities surrounding such dialogues.

The event is a result of a collaboration between the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (CCDS) at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Caribbean In/Securities: Creativity and Negotiation in the Caribbean (CARISCC), an international research network funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which seeks to explore the interactions between the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the negotiation of risk through creativity, in a Caribbean context.

Planned event activities include the exhibition launch, keynote speakers, artist-led discussions, research panels and paper presentations distributed across the two days.

CARISCC are very pleased to be showing a new sculptural work by award-winning artist Sonia Barrett at the exhibition launch and photography by Sireita Mullings. On the evening of 26th June CARISCC will also host a special screening of Shashamane, a film created by Giulia Amati. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion including Giulia Amati (filmmaker and winner of more than twenty awards, including the Aljazeera International Documentary Film Festival Jury’s Award), Errol Brown (brother of Ras Mweya Masimba, animation artist featured in the film), Pat Noxolo (University of Birmingham and lead investigator of CARISCC); and Ronald Cummings (Brock University, Canada, and member of the CARISCC network).
