Tribe on Campus
Black History Month Interruptions!
Black History Interruptions! was a week long programme of events that took place in collaboration between the Learning Skills programme and the Centre for Race, Education, and Decoloniality, Leeds Beckett University during Black History Month in 2019.
Tribe facilitated workshops with students at the Central School of Speech and Drama to discuss the practice of decolonial theatre and the representation of black bodies on stage.
Tribe were invited to speak at Disorienting Race at Leeds Beckett in 2019.
Curated by Dr Shona Hunter, it brought together engaged interdisciplinary scholars and performers to explore the ways in which intersecting hierarchies of race are disrupted and reinforced through everyday practices such as how we look, talk think and act though our biographies and identities, our institutions, in our common places at the local shop, in the school and in our governing spaces.
Tribe were invited on the panel at the University of Leeds to speak at After Empire, a conference held in December 2018 which facilitated a discussion over race, migration, Empire and British identity fifty years after Enoch Powell’s infamous ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech.
New Perspectives on Participatory Arts
In 2018, we were invited to speak at the University of East Anglia on the 40th Anniversary celebration of the Salisbury Centre for Visual Arts. We discussed how we use Tribe Talks as a tool of participatory theatre, exploring new knowledge and practice generated by around participatory arts.
