Online writing workshop facilitated by Lola Olufemi

Using prompts from her new book Experiments in Imagining Otherwise and archival material related to black feminist organising formations in the 70s and 80s, Lola Olufemi will conduct a free-writing workshop, where participants will be asked to respond to prompts in a written form, exploring the political utility of the imagination; its purpose, manifestations and importance to revolutionary movements.

This workshop forms part of The Ignorant Art School Sit-in Curriculum #2.
