First Waves Introductory Session, Wednesday 25th April, 11am to 1pm, Women only
Artist Scarlett Crawford is gathering stories to create artworks that reflect the growth towards an inclusive democracy. This is a chance to meet Scarlett, share memories, have some lovely food, and come together to plan a series of workshops that champion the communities who fought for change.
Scarlett Crawford is a photographer who has worked as an Artist Educator across London’s inner-city communities for over 10 years. Having recently completed her Masters in Global Cultural and Creative Industries at the School of Oriental and African studies, she is passionate about equality and diversity in the creative industries and beyond. Her photographic work examines the semiotics of race and class by creating images that try to portray narratives of the underrepresented. Her powerful images juxtapose object, person and place in participatory constructed portraiture that blurs the lines between fact and fiction, stage and document.
“Art generates conversation and from that conversation the understanding needed to combat the virus of racial stigma can begin to flow” – Professor Iyiola Solanke
