Venue Online
Admission Free
Start Time 14:00
End Time 16:00

Join FACT for a Zoom workshop facilitated by Natalie Denny and Xana that will explore how people have, on a local community and national level, amplified their voices in protest.

This workshop is open to queer, trans, non-binary and femme black and people of colour and responds to Black Obsidian Sound System’s current exhibition at FACT.

The workshop is free and held online, 24 July, 2pm-4pm. See here for tickets.

During the first part of the workshop, Natalie will discuss her own activist work and Liverpool’s history of activism, before opening up the conversation for attendees to talk about their experiences and build networks together. In the second part of the workshop, Xana will lead a megaphone making workshop as we continue our conversation, and explore protest music theory.

The workshop will not be recorded but they will be collecting a list of websites, organisations and books referenced in this workshop to share as a resource on FACT’s website after the event for anyone who would like to continue their research.

There are limited spaces available for this workshop, and there will be a waiting list for places. If you sign up and then find you are unable to attend, please cancel your booking and your space will be reallocated to someone on the waiting list.
