Online festival for postcolonial perspectives on culture in the rural areas

INFORMATION ABOUT THE EVENT

Curating (In)Visibilities
Online Festival Post-Colonial Perspectives on culture in the rural areas

In many cities in Germany and Europe, various initiatives are working to make visible histories that a colonial worldview was meant to erase. But what about in rural areas? What connections are there here to colonial history? In what ways do colonial continuities manifest themselves here?

These are some of the questions we ask ourselves on the topic and on which we would like to focus in an online festival on rural areas. In doing so, we want to approach these questions from a postcolonial perspective. In particular, we want to think about the possible effects that decolonisation could have on our socio-cultural and political educational work. We want to start asking ourselves what we can do differently.

The Online Festival (31.08 - 02.09.2021). Three days of thematic input, talks, workshops, performance and networking.

The festival is aimed at Black/Indigenous/People of Color (BIPOC) who work in cultural, arts or political education, activists, artists, community organizers whose life or work experiences are connected to the rural world. But it is also aimed at BIPOC who want to participate in reflection on the rural. Above all, we want to give space to BIPOC people to connect and share and create knowledge.
