The Fruitmarket Gallery’s current exhibition by South African artists William Kentridge and Vivienne Koorland tackles the subject of racism and historical division within South African, and world history. This free event marks the end of this exhibition on the eve of One Day Without Us, a national day of action to celebrate the contribution of migrants to the UK coinciding with United Nations World Day of Social Justice.

There will be readings from poets whose work tackles the challenges of racism and xenophobia, with an open mic slot for those who wish to add their voice. Space will be provided for community, faith and anti-racism groups who wish to share information. Our café, MILK, will run a dry bar with cakes and sweet treats throughout the event. And the evening will be a last opportunity to think in and spend time with the exhibition Conversations in Letters and Lines.

Poets wishing to read, please help us plan by letting us know if you would like a five-minute slot. Contact
