Where pop culture meets social justice
The past year has seen a new wave of radical pop-cultural expression emerge. Following on from our Pop Culture meets Social Change Retreat (17-19 March 2021), over the next six months Counterpoints Arts through its Popchange initiative will host a series of five salons exploring the opportunities for real change presented within the New Brave world Report (2021). These discussions will reflect the ongoing Popchange themes of racial justice, comedy and gaming, incorporating significant and relevant conversations of migration and displacement in the UK.
The themes of the five salons PopChange is hosting over 2021 (details will be updated here):
- July 14 – Racial Justice, Pop Culture and Social Struggle – Kicking off the Popchange Salon Series on July 14, K Biswas – a central contributor to the New Brave World report – will chair the first panel with Leah Cowan and Selina Nwulu.
- September – Comedy
- October – TV
- November – Gaming
- December – Narrative change
