30th Jul 2016
On 30th July 2016, Stuart Hall Foundation trustees met with young activists to engage in the conversations about developing partnerships that would connect different generations and empower new activist collectives and projects.
These young activists are reinventing the kind of cultural and identity politics that was developed in the 1980s but have since been largely forgotten. They are developing new and sophisticated strategies and making connections between what have traditionally been quite separate areas. These include race, class, intergenerational issues, mental health, the politics of the family, restorative justice, gender, feminism, ethical sourcing, ecology and food. Such ways of thinking are variously described as intersectional or diasporic.
The Stuart Hall Foundation is committed to building relationships with these groups and projects. The collectives we are working with include Shake, Skin Deep, Generational Revolution and Brainchild festival.
