In a Nutshell

A quick update for anyone new to this project, or anyone checking back in to see how things have changed.

Conference – Women in Carnival

Emily Zobel Marshall is one of my Dream Team of PhD supervisors, I was determined to attend and support… then I met the Whip Princess, The Camboulay Queen and so many more amazing women in Carnival! Plenty to learn from them.

Exhibition Review – Life Between Islands

This was a hard exhibition to write about. I suppose you can tell. It took me months to come back to this. I felt so triggered for most of it. Still, I knew these stories had to be told. Equally, I felt so happy to see our Caribbean resilience and joy so bold and bright!

Exhibition Review – Blowtorching the Bitten Peach

The most emotive exhibition he’d ever been to and still had no clue what it was about. So yuh know who had to check it out, right?

Exhibition Review – Joy & Tranquillity

I went to see Joy & Tranquillity at the Wellcome Galleries, not just because I’m obsessed with joy bringing, but because both exhibitions got such lack lustre reviews. How do you do an exhibition about joy and leave so many feeling so unmoved? I simply had to know, if for no other reason than to ensure I did not commit the same mistakes.

Other Instances of the Exhibition Name

Has anyone else had this same bright idea before. I hit the internet – hard. Thus began my first Contextual Map/Review for this project.

Cropped intricate circular pattern almost like a henna tattoo or mandala but of African design influence.

The Post-Racist Planet

As I’m designing an exhibition that is trying to achieve something similar to this documentary maybe I should see how they achieved their goal and how people have received it?

Why am I writing a paper on Social Change Curation?

As I changed direction since I started this “Let’s write a paper” journey, I have to do this ‘Why’ process again. It’s the thing that will keep me on track when my eyes see something interesting and my curiosity sends me careening off course to investigate! So let’s do it.
