A Critical Ten Point Plan to Creating Professional Sectors that Reflect Society
Whether it is the halls of Denmark, the festivals of Belgium or streets of Edinburgh, urgent and collective action needs to be taken. As Paul Gilroy, a leading thinker on race and racism, suggests, we need to take sober actions to remove ourselves from the stupor of postcolonial melancholia. It is also tiring to continue to deny the role of racism as a way of propping up the fantasy of white innocence in many structures.
This speech is a call to broaden our canon and continue making transnational alliances in an effort to make institutions better reflecting the differences in society, which will ultimately benefit the cultural (and other professional) sectors.
