Toestanden #2 with Grace Ndiritu / Amanda Piña / Maria Lucia Cruz Correia
Mon 01.02.'2120:00 - 22:00Online
In the debate series Toestanden we enter into discussion with fascinating guests on the issues that keep us awake at night. Every online edition is moderated by Vooruit’s guest dramaturg Kopano Maroga. Join us for the first edition of Toestanden of 2021 where we will look at environmental justice strategies rooted in decolonization and social justice through a conversation between artists Grace Ndiritu, Maria Lucia Cruz Correia and Amanda Piña.
“Climate change is racist because the system that caused it is racist. No, rainstorms don’t care about skin colour, but worsening weather worldwide aggravates the divisions in society that already exist because it hits people of colour living in poverty the hardest. Simply put: the reason the world hasn’t been fighting climate change as hard as it should is because powerful people don’t want to stop exploiting people of colour. The urgency of climate change is also an urgency for racial justice.”
