Bricks is a space for Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) students to run nights of art, poetry, music, open mic and more. It is led entirely by students for students.
Each week a different group of BME students will run an event which is open for all to attend. These may include events such as a poetry night, a film screening, or an album listening party. The space is there for you to decide what to do with it!
This week The LatinX Society are hosting a participatory photography project launch event with disaporic Goldsmiths students and alumni, taking portraits of them, posed as a person from their ancestral heritage who is/was important but no photos exist of them or their history has been erased/whitewashed. The participant becomes the representation (the role model) they did not have when they were growing up. The participant will take the lead, deciding whose likeness they want to recreate and what styling, artifacts or objects are important to be photographed in the portrait.
The launch event will include live music from The Kiltres, a short film screening and a participatory workshop. The night will be filled with cultural community affects, and members from the LatinX Community at Goldsmiths will cook traditional dishes and play traditional music.
