This is session three of the Black British Artists and Political Activism series. In this session, ​Ingrid Pollard, in conversation with Adele Patrick, will look to the ways in which artists responded to and documented activism against Section 28 of the Local Government Act 1988. ‘Section 28’, as it was known until its repeal in England and Wales in 2003 (following Scotland where it was repealed in 2000), prohibited the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ by local authorities and its passage was a flashpoint in the struggle for LGBTQI+ rights in Britain.

Please note: This event has been rescheduled and will now take place on 18 November.

The series will run every Thursday from 4 November to 9 December from 18.30 to 20.00. This series will be broadcast live as a Zoom webinar. It will be recorded and published at a later date. Registration through Eventbrite is required.

No prior art historical knowledge is necessary.
