Do Better: A Conversation with Wezi Mhura and Suzanne Williams about the Black Lives Matter Mural Trail

As part of Black History Month, join a conversation with Wezi Mhura (producer of the Scottish Black Lives Matter Mural Trail) and Suzanne Williams (artist - Stirling campus Do Better artwork) about their work.

Since June 2020, 40 art installations have been commissioned across the country, from Shetland to the Borders, including, 'Do Better', a new outdoor sculpture by Suzanne Williams on the Stirling University campus. The ever-growing Mural Trail was devised by curator, Wezi Mhura. She says 'the artworks - colourful, challenging, moving, powerful and diverse - inspired by the themes of race, equality and Black Lives Matter, are created by artists from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds, living in Scotland'. Wezi and Suzanne will introduce their respective work, and then we'll open out the conversation to all who are curious about art, action and representation during covid-times.

Hosted by Damian Etone (Co-Director of Msc in Human Rights) and Gemma Robinson (Postcolonial Research Group) from the University of Stirling

Organised by the Art Collection and Scene Stirling
