8 February 2019 BARC Zine-Making Workshop: Making Tools of Resistance

Far from the idea of developing a tool-kit, BARC wish to explore and understand the power of creating subversive artefacts that can be exchanged, circulated, and passed around the university campus space as an act of anti-racist intervention. The workshop invites 15 attendees to develop ideas for making zines. Drawing inspiration from the 19th century abolitionist pamphlet campaigns, the workshop will facilitate zine design, content and piloting campaigns to be launched at Kent Law School’s decolonizing event in March 2019. A few spaces are still open – to register, email us.


20 February 2019 Queen Mary University of London Teaching and Learning conference

BARC will be facilitating a session targeting teaching faculty and administrative staff. The session will comprise of playing a ‘student journey game’, a free evidence-based resource that BARC have developed for raising awareness purposes. The game has been developed in line with the knowledge students of colour at Queen Mary have about their experiences of structural inequality in classroom dynamics and campus life. Bookings are open for QMUL staff only.
