Caribbean In/Securities and Creativity: Diasporic Dialogues
Sunday 25 and Monday 26 June 2017
Venue: The Knowledge Centre, British Library, London

Following our diaspora-focused conference in 2016, this year’s two-day event will include a conference and an art and research exhibition speaking to the theme of Caribbean and diasporic dialogues where the role of creativity is highlighted in negotiating the in/securities permeating such dialogues. The event is a result of collaboration between the Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies (CCDS) at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Caribbean In/Securities: Creativity and Negotiation in the Caribbean (CARISCC), an international research network funded by the Leverhulme Trust  seeking to explore interactions between the precariousness of insecure livelihoods and neighbourhoods, and the negotiation of risk through creativity, in a Caribbean context. CARISCC deploys the term ‘in/securities’ to foreground the interplay between security and insecurity as negotiated and shaped by everyday interactions and responses as much as by top-down processes and formal politics.

The event is supported by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library.

Confirmed Keynotes include Mr Hew Locke and Professor Hazel Carby.
