Historically and currently – from the civil rights movement in the US to the contemporary global movements around Black Lives Matter – women of colour have often been at the forefront of campaigns to create more humane and integrated policies and places. The #ThereISBlackInTheUnionJack project (launched on 20 October) looks at race in Bristol through the generations, including women of colour. What can this – and historic and global movements for change – teach us about the future of cities? Speakers include: Madhu Krishnan (University of Bristol), Sumita Mukherjee (University of Bristol) Aisha Rana-Deshmukh (University of Bristol), and Nicole Truesdell (Beloit College).
Thanks to support from Heritage Lottery Fund this event is free.

Events start punctually and, out of consideration to other audience members and speakers, our policy is not to admit latecomers. Please arrive in plenty of time to take your seat as we will be admitting anyone waiting without a ticket into empty seats five minutes before start.
We endeavour to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct.
We sometimes film and photograph events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
