TALK SERIES: RADICAL SELF CARE | AFROPUNK @ THE DEPARTMENT STORE
In order to be creative, successful and liberated, you have to get your mind right. Mental wellness, wholeness and focus takes time, hard work and energy. We discuss the issues around mental illness in the Black community, the stigma around mental health, and how we can heal ourselves and our community. A dialogue with mental health professionals, activist and advocates.

198 Contemporary Arts & Learning Zine and Exhibition Launch
People. Art. Resistance., is a zine and exhibition produced by AFROPUNK London and 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning. The zine challenges young creatives including commissioned artists from 198 CAL’s multidisciplinary art programme and open submission artists to respond to Black British resistance – past, present, and future. For source material artists explored both 198 CAL and Tate Britain archives as well as drawing inspiration from their own personal struggles, exploration of cultural roots and the broader context of global black resistance. Created over 4 weeks, with the support of the Arts Council of England, the zine will be distributed freely and the exhibition will be open to public at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning during AFROPUNK London Festival September 3rd – 8th 2018.
