Do you remember Rock Against Racism (1976 to 1981), the groundbreaking movement formed by musicians and political activists to fight racism through music?

As part of our exhibition by Syd Shelton, we are calling out for contributions to FLASHBACK, a collection of people’s stories, memories, photographs and memorabilia of the Rock Against Racism movement.

A large selection of work from Murray Ballard's The Prospect of Immortality will be shown at The Dick Institute, KIlmarnock as part of group exhibition About Time.

About Time runs from 14 May to 20 August  2016 at The Dick Institute

This digitally interactive workshop takes pupils on a journey around our exhibition Passion by Maud Sulter. Pupils will learn about Sulter’s collages and photomontages and have the opportunity to make their very own using postcards, newspapers and cut outs from magazines. Pupils will work in groups using digital cameras and film editing software to learn how to make their montage come alive.
