Join ROOT-ed zine founders and editors Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson for a workshop on the language we use in art and politics. Using Jade Montserrat’s glossary of terms in her exhibition, Instituting Care, Akaunu and Johnson will lead a session in which these terms of collectively discussed, reviewed and even altered. Through open discussion the group will work through the meanings of terms such as ‘decolonisation’, ‘othering’ and ‘privilege’ and suggest other terms which might be useful to us when discussing ideas of class, race, gender, disability and care.

ROOT-ed (Revolution of our time) is a self-published zine, and social platform, that aims to promote, support and inspire creative people of colour within the North West of England. The zine is run by artists Amber Akaunu and Fauziya Johnson. The two saw a lack of representation in university, media, galleries and museums and felt the need to create this platform to represent the underrepresented by allowing creatives to showcase their talents and skills and voice their thoughts and ideas. ROOT-ed Zine is published bi-monthly, in addition to current and important content published on their social media platforms including YouTube, Twitter and their website
