Join Skin Deep for the launch of our fifth print edition: IMAGINING 2043 on Thursday 28th July 2016 at 6pm. The evening will include readings, artwork, visual and audio experiences, as well as music from our resident DJs Zakia Sewell + Erica McKoy.
The issue will feature work by Haris A. Durani, Tiona McClodden, Elijah Moreau, Maya Mackrandilal, Alicia Reyes McNamara, Emma Uwejoma, Tunji Adeniyi-Jones and other writers, artists and talented young creatives. It will explore themes of climate, gender, exotification, borders, migration, futurism and all things speculative.
The event is FREE and all are welcome. It is in partnership with Free Word, an international organisation dedicated to literature, literacy and free expression, where Skin Deep is currently an associate. The event will be hosted at Free Word Centre in Farringdon.
About IMAGINING 2043: The future is the dream that sustains those who find no accommodation in the present. It is a realm in which we can imagine a world free from the things that prohibit or oppress us. In the future there are no borders, the climate is no longer an issue, gender is fluid, cyborg is a reality, egalitarianism is the norm and racism is a thing of the past. Delaying tactics often known as tomorrow, next week, the following month or maybe 2017 are too tainted by the realities of a world known as today to allow us to imagine these possibilities. So we offer 2043, a date far enough to have evaded the grasp of today and near enough that we may witness the realization of all our hopes for the future. We invite you to imagine with us!
