Radical New Cross: protest and dissent 1875 - 2015

A welcome reminder that Universities are supposed to encourage challenging ideas, rather than provide safe spaces. Goldsmiths says:

From 12 – 15 November, Goldsmiths are putting on a range of free events inspired by the theme ‘Radical New Cross: protest and dissent 1875 – 2015’.

We’re opening up some of our most historic and lesser seen spaces, including the newly restored Deptford Town Hall Council Chamber and the St James Hatcham church for workshops, exhibitions a panel discussion and a meal.

We will be joined by Lewisham’s first black police constable who was at the infamous Battle of Lewisham in 1977 as well as contributions from artists, activists, community groups and academics.
