(But) What Are You Doing About White Supremacy?
Sorryyoufeeluncomfortable is a collective of thinkers and makers who use art practice and dialogue to explore dominant social discourses and re-imagine new ways of living, practicing and being in the world.
(BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY? will respond to contemporary manifestations of white supremacy, strategies for action, healing and justice and consider how these relate to the city of Glasgow and those people and artists who live here. The Gallow Gate at Many Studios will become a space for radical exploration hosting discussions, screenings and workshops led by sorryyoufeeluncomfortable and guests.
An updated programme of events will be available at manystudios.co.uk/syfu.
