The Radical Solidarity Summit is a week-long online gathering to address urgent issues of our time, explore alternative futures, and discuss the possibilities that can be forged in the cultural field through acts of radical solidarity.

It is an opportunity to connect with other organisations and individuals, artists, curators, activists, writers and educators who are passionate about learning, supporting and collaborating in a spirit of generosity and who are committed to the continued fostering of the arts from Africa and its diaspora.

Alongside the programme of talks, the event will feature film screenings, performance, readings and an Instagram take-over.
