We are the spirits who walk amongst you (sorry not sorry)' is a workshop by Alberta Whittle as part of Glasgow School Art's Freshers' Week programme and the GSA Race, Rights and Sovereignty series (RRS).
'We are the spirits who walk amongst you (sorry not sorry)' is a workshop looking at how we understand individualised and collective humxnity. Through engaging with truth telling as a form of truth talking, we will look at how perceptions of history can impact our ability for empathy as a radical decolonial practice.
Workshop capacity is limited. We’ll be serving lunch before so come along early if you want (any donations to GAS).
3-6pm, Friday 14th September
