Event: Decolonize how? (Glasgow)

In person event | Friday 15 September at Milk cafe, 452 Victoria Road, Glasgow, G42 8YU

The impacts of colonialism are not a thing of the past – they are very much part of our present and future. This event will explore what it could mean to reckon with this and why it is essential to building a more just future.

We will also be launching our new ‘NI meet ups’ – reader led groups where people can get together, discuss the content of our latest magazine and get to know each other.

Free food will be provided at 7.00pm.
This will be followed by New Internationalist co-editor Amy Hall in conversation with Tommy J Curry from the Decolonised Transformations project at the University of Edinburgh and Glasgow based journalist Enas Magzoub.
Later there will be a group discussion around the themes of the talk and our new magazine Decolonize Now, and the wider Decolonize How? series.
There will be time for drinks and chat at the end.

Places are limited so registration via this event page is essential.

This project was funded by the European Journalism Centre through the Solutions Journalism Accelerator. This fund is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
