Disobedient Objects at the V&A: 'Express Yourself' event with Christine Checinska

The second Stuart Hall Library Animateur, Christine Checinska, will be speaking at the Victoria & Albert Museum this Friday evening, 21 November in response to the Disobedient Objects exhibition. 

Christine's talk will be part of the free, drop-in 'Express Yourself' event which starts at 6:30pm.

The talks will focus on how today's protesters initiate their campaigns or change the world using social media, film, "flash mobs, hashtags, selfies, up-cycling, masquerade, TEDtalks, PechaKuchas, films and freedom songs"

Christine will speak about the African diaspora's material culture in Britain as a vehicle for quiet and overt activism; making a statement about oneself, and oneself in the world, from both an individual and collective level.
