BLAME – Brown Leaders and Makers Exist

Practice based PhD student Remi Allen has created BL&ME with the aim of bringing together discourses on how to make the ‘brown feminist maker visible’.

BL&ME aims to be a research hub that highlights current topics and debates regarding Brownness, through publications, events and networking. Over the last couple of years, the group’s membership has grown. We have successfully received funding from the CCW UAL MPhil/PhD Initiative, the research Student Support Fund, TrAIN research student bursary and British Art Network, Tate and Paul Mellon Centre, to produce a print publication from BL&ME, the first edition of Cha. We had a call out for contributions and the response was overwhelmingly positive and of a high-quality both nationally and internationally. Contributors ranged from artists, academics, curators, poets, activists, researchers and educators.

We are an all inclusive group. Membership is open throughout the year. Members are welcome to BL&ME events and are invited to join the conversation and dissemination of research conducted by BL&ME.

To join, contact Remi Allen

BL&ME is an opportunity to promote diversity, equality and dialogue through the arts.
