7th February, 2014 / 11.00am - 4.00pm
10th December, 2020
This creative writing workshop led by author and academic Olumide Popoola and TCCE Associate Pauline Rutter is the first in a series of events that invite extended questioning about social justice and equity in Higher Education.
It will take a playful approach to exploring the voice and language of our creative selves while bringing to life personal interpretations of this moment in time.
Throughout this academic year, Pauline will be working with us on a programme that considers social justice and equity within higher education, with particular reference to the Research Excellence Framework. This work forms part of our response to the Black Lives Matter movement, and is underpinned by our longstanding commitment to use our resources to platform a wide range of voices, experiences and points of view, and to address challenging questions in inclusive and creative ways.
This event will be followed by a Micro Assembly on the afternoon of the 27th January, responding to questions and issues raised in the workshop. Dimensions to be covered concerning HE, research and REF will include personal, emotional, relational, mental health and practical considerations within HEI environment.
Booking will open shortly, but please do save the date until then.
