Diversity has become an increasingly popular concept, but what if we thought about diversity as more than the inclusion of difference?
This lecture, Beyond indifference, more than difference by Eugenia Flynn, explores alternative narratives, ideas of re-centring and notions of multiplicity in order to challenge and provoke. This lecture is presented by WRITING & CONCEPTS alongside ACCA’s current exhibition A Lightness of Spirit is the Measure of Happiness.
