Black Heritage: Narratives of Diaspora
Black Staff, Postgraduates, Doctoral Researchers and Alumni have submitted diasporic objects as part of our Black History Month exhibition.
LU Arts is working with Dr Kerri Akiwowo, Senior Lecturer in Textiles (School of Design and Creative Arts), to develop a project that, through the presentation of objects and stories, celebrates, and reflects the many diasporas of Black staff, postgraduates, doctoral researchers, and alumni.
The project will collect and present a range of interesting objects that communicate different diaspora’s. These will then be presented within a specially created display structure that will be shown within the Martin Hall Gallery between 16 October – 10 November as part of Black History Month.
Black staff, Postgraduates, Doctoral Researchers and Alumni, including those of mixed-black heritage were invited to submit objects that reflected their diaspora and provided some information explaining their connection to the object. Physical objects, owned or collected, ceramics, artwork and textiles will be on display.
Please note we are not taking anymore submissions but should you have any questions please email LUArts@lboro.ac.uk.
If you have been selected to take part in the project, you will need to bring your object to the LU Arts office in Martin Hall. You can do so Mondays-Wednesdays, 10:00-15:00 from w/c 18 September. The deadline for dropping off work is Wednesday 4 October 2023.
