Writing for Change

July 26 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Get ready for a lively discussion on writing for change! Join us as we explore the fascinating intersection of art, politics, and power. Can art and politics ever truly be separated? Should they be?

From wielding art as a tool for propaganda to using it as a means of resistance, we’ll uncover how art has been both a weapon and a force for change throughout history. Hear from a diverse panel of authors and activists as they share their insights on how their work intersects with politics and why this conversation is now, more relevant than ever.

Writer, literary programmer and Primadonna Sabeena Akhtar is joined by: author and journalist, Monisha Rajesh; writer, novelist, public intellectual, and a champion for decolonisation and inclusion across all aspects of society, Sunny Singh; and Bradford-based author Sairish Hussain, whose second novel, Hidden Fires, is out now.
