Cha, a print publication from Brown Leaders and Markers Exist (BL&ME)
Cha: what does Brownness mean to you? A print publication from Brown Leaders and Makers Exist (BL&ME)
In October 2022, the team behind the BL&ME Interest Group launched Cha, a print publication with a simple brief: ‘what does Brownness mean to you?’. 27 artist-researchers from around the world responded to explore this evolving mode of cultural identification in relation to its representation and inclusion in arts and culture.
Hosted at the Banquetting Hall at Chelsea College of Arts, Cha’s expansive creative community came together to celebrate this achievement. Performances from artists and contributors were complimented by talks from the team behind BL&ME.
