In 2015 we supported DASH to launch Awkward Bastards, a conversation aimed at asking awkward and challenging questions about diversity.
The two-day symposium brought together academics, artists and activists from the UK and USA to talk disability, ethnicity, sexuality, gender and class.
This time Awkward Bastards will focus on underrepresentation, exclusion and invisibility.
Through Awkward Bastards DASH are encouraging people to have open, challenging and honest conversations about diversity, asking those big, awkward questions and tackling them head on.
Abid Hussain, Director, Diversity, Arts Council England.
The symposium will take place at mac Birmingham on Wednesday 22 and Thursday 23 March.
Panel discussions on day two will then consider how we frame diversity and what our responsibilities are to represent diversity in both the past and future.
The symposium will also feature keynote speeches from Tate Director Frances Morris and David A Bailey of the International Curators Forum.
Throughout the event artist Tanya Rabbe-Webber will be creating a live portrait.
