• CURRICULUM 003: Rita Gayle On Black Feminist Collectives

Join Rita Gayle, PhD Researcher (University of Birmingham) for a talk outlining her current investigations into the millennial generation of Black feminist creative collectives in Britain.

Gayle explores how these collectives have formed as a strategy to counteract their exclusion from the creative and cultural industries.

She interrogates the effects that navigating different dominant cultural narratives has on the collectives.

Gayle questions the reverberations these collectives have on Black British culture and their impact on sector-wide conversations on the diversity gap.


This event is part of CURRICULUM, an evolving live programme and display by Narration Group, exploring ideas of collective practice.

The event will be audio-recorded and documented live by London-based Illustrator Olivia Twist. The transcribed conversation and accompanying illustration will be published in the CURRICULUM display and collated in a new publication, CURRICULUM FOR COLLECTIVE PRACTICE.

Rita Gayle is a PhD Researcher at The Department of Geography, University of Birmingham. Gayle started her career working in television news before returning to her studies to undertake a BA in Film at London College of Communications, University of the Arts London. Gayle then worked in Further Education teaching Film and Media Studies across London. More recently, she completed an MA in Postcolonial Culture and Global Policy at Goldsmiths University of London.
