9dec2:00 pm- 5:30 pmTime for change: Generation Revolution at TATELondon


Event Details

Join us for a free film screening and panel discussion exploring the productivity of protest

Political activism is often judged in terms of its productivity and the specific changes it provokes. But how should we value the time spent protesting? Does activism upset conventional ideas around labour and production?

Join us for a free screening of the acclaimed documentary film Generation Revolution (2016), which follows two Black-led grassroots groups attempting to create radical change. The screening is followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A with the film’s directors, Cassie Quarless and Usayd Younis, alongside Sarah Walker, spokesperson for the English Collective of Prostitutes, and chaired by Red Chidgey, Lecturer in Gender and Media, King’s College London.

This event is free of charge and seating is on a first come, first served basis. Please arrive early to guarantee your place.
