Centre Archive Workshop on “Documenting Home”
The Centre Archive is a space for all those involved in the Centre for Equity & Inclusion to creatively document and share experiences of identity, heritage, higher education and/or racial justice. It is an opportunity for self-reflection, forming new narratives, and building solidarity. The creative work takes various forms (written, audio, video, photography) and is showcased as part of Migration Matters Festival. To see the outputs from our first series, visit: https://antiracistarchive.equityinclusionsheffield.co.uk/
For our second series we will be focusing on the theme of home. How do we define home? What are the experiences and consequences of being displaced from home? How do we (re)create home? These are just some of the discussion points that will be considered during the year. We will co-produce creative responses to these questions and publicly showcase them in June 2024.
Workshops take place once a month between January and June 2024.
The first workshop invites PGRs of colour to discuss how we document experiences of home. Each participant will be asked to bring in one object that captures the essence of home for them. These objects will be used to prompt an initial conversation on the topic. We will then spend some time exploring how home is documented by Caleb Femi in his poetry and photography collection ‘Poor’. 2 short extracts (1 poem and 1 photograph) will be shared before the workshop takes place. Finally, we will develop ideas for creatively documenting our experiences of home for this year’s showcase.
Details of the next workshop are below:
