(Re)Framing the Archive, available here.

(Re)Framing the Archive Book Launch and Talk by Panya Banjoko on Saturday 2nd July 2022 at New Art Exchange, Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham. Free.

Panya Banjoko’s poems derive from her personal engagement with museums over two decades and as the founder of Nottingham Black Archive. They are an attempt to give space to those voices that are otherwise submerged and highlight the disparity in underrepresentation of Black people as curators of their own history. They can be seen as an intentional social and political act of activism providing a space for political thought, discussion, and action.
