Shared Narratives, led by Ankna Arockiam and Uchenna Ngwe, are delighted to be hosting an online conference, Shared Narratives: Supporting work by performing arts researchers of colour, on the 18 – 21 November 2020 supported by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

This is an opportunity for researchers of colour to support, network and showcase their varied areas of academic interests, recognising the breadth and quality of performing arts research produced by academics of colour.

WHAT IS SHARED NARRATIVES?

Shared Narratives aims to create a platform for academic voices that are often hidden, particularly in conservatoire and university settings. This event will provide an opportunity for sharing research produced by researchers of colour and develop a collaborative networking space for academics and practitioners of colour.

WHO WILL I HEAR FROM?

Presentations, papers, performance and discussion groups will be delivered and facilitated by academics and practitioners of colour in disciplines including Music, Dance, Acting, Musical Theatre, Film Studies and Theatre Production.

WHEN WILL IT TAKE PLACE?

The event will take place online on the afternoons of Wednesday 18, Thursday 19, Friday 20 and Saturday 21 November and the conference programme can be found here.
