Britain on Trial: Young Voices Speak Out!

Saturday 29th October, 11.30 – 7pm
The Carriageworks, Leeds

The re-trial for justice for Stephen Lawrence is beginning in November, 18 years on from his murder at a bus stop in London. At the same time, the country is trying to pretend the ‘riots’ never happened. In Britain on Trial, we ask “where are we now” through a day of workshops and an evening performance to expose Britain’s injustices.

Anyone wanting to listen to young people and discuss with us how to take a stand and foster creative resistance to institutional racism – you should come to this.

This day is a unique rich mix of politics, art & creativity, and history, driven by young people’s own experiences and analyses in collaboration with leading artists and campaigners. Don’t miss out.

Book now, email platformshake@gmail.com

Hosted by an incredible coalition of Leeds Young Authors, London’s “Shake! Young Voices in Arts, Media, Race & Power” and Leeds University academics from the MA Activism and Social Change, with collaborators from Leeds Bi-Centenary Transformation Project, and Leeds Black Film Club. Chaired by outstanding activist and speaker Esther Stanford-Xosei of Pan-Afrikan Reparations Coalition of Europe.
