“Performing” Race at Central Event – November 2018

Established in late 2018 as a lead on from the Performing Race event hosted by the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London in November 2018 – the Social Performance Network has been steadily building on the ethos of its first event to expand the conversation. In this spirit, we are welcoming collaborations, friendships, alliances, and support from networks and organisations that represent the nuances often omitted from dominant narratives. Work with us to bring nuance to social conversations!

 

Contact us if you would like to discuss creative and/or intellectual synergies or would just like to be our friend.
