Rep The Road: Our series on repairing the routes and roads of colonial violence in our communities, building roads to representation beyond tokenism, and reppin’ from the streets!

An invitation for our next Shakaring – an intimate sharing space and community Scratch Night! ( only limited spaces due to capacity rsvp to confirm space) 

This Spring, Shake! is working on the Black Activism Map. Commissioned alongside Skin Deep by the Stuart Hall Foundation, the project celebrates and documents Black and Brown Resistance in Britain through poetry, visual art, musical production, and the documentation of community voices, to be showcased in September.
