Part of the inReach – /ɪn riːtʃ/ seminar series

About the inReach – /ɪn riːtʃ/ seminar series
- inside the distance to which someone can stretch out their hand.
- within the capacity of someone to attain or achieve something
- (inversion of ‘outreach’) considers the expertise of those usually closed off from academic and artistic reception.
The term ‘inReach’ signifies any action which reshapes elite institutions as inclusive domains through centrally placing work by people otherwise absent in traditional arts and academic spaces. This series will critically question and therefore set to prove false the too-common trope that certain people are ‘hard to reach.’ By bringing artists, academics, and key local publics together via CRASSH, inReach will amplify the underacknowledged value of lived expertise of socially marginalised people, while also fostering ongoing debates about transience, stigma and inequality in the UK.
Unless otherwise stated, all seminars take place at 17:00GMT on the scheduled Tuesdays for 90 minutes, beginning with a 45-60 minute talk and followed by a Q&A/discussion.
We are currently open to booking additional speakers for Lent Term. Please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
