privilege and coffee

The lovely Hamish MacPherson and I  are hosting a coffee morning chat about privilege at Chisenhale Dance Space on Tuesday 20 June 2017 at 11am.

Here’s the poster:

Here’s the blurb:

“Privilege is not in and of itself bad; what matters is what we do with privilege.” (bell hooks). We’d like to discuss privileges: ours, yours, the dance community’s. We’d like to discuss the obvious privileges, the subtle privileges, the ones that sneak under our skin when we are dancing and choreographing and making films. We’d like to hear about how you have used and abused privileges, and when you’ve been on the receiving end of them. We’d like to discuss the work that we can do. There will be cake and there will be coffee, because nothing says privilege like sitting around on a week day morning drinking coffee and eating cake.
