How can the contemporary art scene in the Hague include the voices and work of black women? What happens when we center Black women artists in the conversation?
Join Sekai Makoni (of the podcast Between Ourselves) who will moderate a panel discussion between artists Aya Kone (KABK), Shardenia Felicia (KABK) and Nike Ayinla of Orisun Studio. Topics of discussion will include Black feminism, space for Black artists, what is getting in the way and possible ways forward?
Sekai Makoni is an artist, podcaster, writer and workshop facilitator who lives in Rotterdam, grew up in the UK but her family heritage is Zimbabwean. Sekai’s work focuses on Black feminism, colonial histories, faith and emotion and song and she is a graduate of the Critical Studies Masters at Sandberg Institute. Her podcast ‘Between Ourselves’ forms part of her artistic practice, it centres Black women in Europe. She is interested in the ways that Black women can hold space for each other through public and private dialogue and how centring these voices can open up different possibilities.
