3 March 2019: Foundations Vol. 3 with Shabaka Hutchings

Foundations is a new monthly reading group with a special guest bringing texts, films and music that have been foundational to their political and creative becomings. The event takes its name from the writing of John La Rose, and the New Beacon Books publication of the same name. These texts will be placed in conversation with related material from The George Padmore Institute. Each edition will feature intimate, open discussions and coincide with open days to allow greater access to selected material outside our regular opening hours.
