Together with their collaboration partners Euton Daley and Junie James, Rachel Barbaresi, Hanna Klien-Thomas and Sylvia Morgado De Queiroz have presented at the CKC2023: New Future for Creative Economies conference in Bristol. In their talk, entitled ‘A Place For We – Mapping creative spaces and the African Caribbean experience in Oxford’, they introduced the wider context of their research constituted by a number of collaborative projects, the ongoing community-led campaigns for permanent space, as well as various student projects at Brookes which have emerged from their activities. In doing so, they discussed ideas for tools of community-led archiving, integrating student learning experiences in collaborative research and how documenting initiatives in academic research can contribute resources for activism and community organising.
