Numbi Arts Engaging the Archive

August 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

DESCRIPTION
Numbi Archive is an ongoing, decade long living archive. Engaging the Archive invites the public to explore the Numbi Mobile Archive and participate in an arts-based exploration of items in the collection. This will be followed by a group discussion reflecting on the role of archiving in our communities, who can we harvest from a living archive and what agency archives hold.

This event will be facilitated by Deqa Abshir, a Somali-Kenyan artist and educator based in Nairobi. Deqa is currently a master’s student in Expressive Arts Therapy at the European Graduate School. Her
multifaceted approach to facilitation will create the space for some interesting discussions around the larger topic of memory.

Part of Numbi Arts Festival 2018 Residency & August Takeover at The Women’s Hall

Our residency at the Tower Hamlets Local History Library features the Numbi mobile museum, a project exploring the histories of East African diaspora women, our anti-imperialist and feminist resistances, and connection to London’s historic East End.

All Numbi Arts Festival 2018 events are free. As we are a non-profit organisation run by unpaid volunteers, we recommend a-pay-what-you-can donation. This festival is suitable for all ages and is wheelchair accessible.

LOCATION:
The Women’s Hall Exhibition Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives 277 Bancroft Road, London E1 4DQ
