Opening Speech from DMAW16 co-organiser at “why does race matter in my learning environment?”

You might have already heard the buzz going around since the heated, at the same time, passionate “why does race matter in my learning environment” panel discussion which took place on the 21st April during Diversity Matters Awareness Week #DMAW16.

For all those wanting to re-live the priceless moments of having UAL senior exec representatives;  George Blacklock – Dean of Chelsea College of Art and Design, and Jeremey Till – Head of College, Central Saint Martins present on a panel with UAL BAME staff members; Tanicia Payne – Co-chair GEMS (The Group for the Equality of Minority Staff), Jennifer Williams-Baffoe Technology Enhancement Learning, Lawrence Lartey – LCC Lecturer, Bee Tajudeen SUARTS Education Officer, and Samia Malik – UAL alumna as Chair, your wait is a little bit longer as the Shades of Noir team edit together the video.

Presentation filmed by Tiffany Webster. Filmed and edited by Kai Lutterodt

In the mean time, here’s my opening speech captured by AGRUPA; a UAL student group from Camberwell promoting the “other voice”. I’m usually the one behind the camera (as was still the case after my break with the speech and screening of the short film CLICK HERE to view on our YouTube Channel!), so this was a refreshing change to have a chance to edit footage of myself… Gracias AGRUPA!
