Silence, and the Dynamising of African Creative Resistance
Oct 15, 2020
Gresham College
In the face of enslavement, colonialism and cultural suppression, peoples of African descent have fought to maintain cherished cultural practices.

Dr Gus Casely-Hayford, the new Director of V&A East, tells the story of how that resistance came to inspire the creation of some of the most dynamic artistic practice of the modern age.

A lecture by Guy Casely-Hayford 15 October
