First Waves: Exploring the impact of race relations legislation in the UK
The Speaker’s Advisory Committee on Works of Art has appointed Scarlett Crawford to explore and celebrate the 1965, 1968 and 1976 Race Relations Acts.
Throughout the First Waves project Scarlett will work with communities across the UK to capture the voices of generations who have been directly impacted by the Race Relations Acts.
Working with six partner institutions, the artist will deliver a series of workshops across the county. During these workshops, individuals will be encouraged to share their experiences through photography, mark-making exercises, and oral histories.
The artworks created at these workshops will be on display at each partner institution in the autumn of 2018, and will then travel to Parliament to be exhibited in Westminster Hall in early 2019.
The artist will be working with six partner institutions across the UK:
- Glasgow Women’s Library
- Race Council Wales
- Nottingham Contemporary
- The Bluecoat, Liverpool
- The Peabody, Thamesmead
- The University of Leeds
