The imaginary within the presentation of *****ness has become an important terrain in which artists have leapt beyond the confines of reality. The reality is, is that ***** folks are oppressed, shut out while also being shut in. *****ness has been branded, packaged, sold and put to work. Commoditised and welcomed inside but yet never fully. To imagine now is to think broadly about the present as fluid, changing and to be changed. It also looks at what should have or could have been, in acknowledgment that these projections will not come to fruition unless we manifest it, through art and through us. How might we take from what we know, but also what we don’t know, in order to project imaginaries that open up spaces where *****ness can exist fully– not within the lexicon of whiteness, but from the nuanced experiences and perspectives of ***** folks globally.
