But We Are Still Here 

Join us for conversations and activities to re-consider how culture is produced

We invite you to give voice to your ideas and experience, to listen to others and re-consider how culture is (re) produced through our everyday behaviours and activities. The project asks difficult questions to provoke debate, reflection, comment and action.

The conversation unfolding on the Tate Exchange floor is framed by a series of photographs by Heather Agyepong to create a thought-provoking installation. Reimagined as Ghanaian Ashanti Warrior Yaa Asantewaa, Agyepong appears in a series of images that raise questions of value, ownership and erasure.

Do you make culture?

You are invited to consider questions about how culture is produced and what it might feel like to be visible/invisible, sharing responses in the space. Contribute further questions in response, exchange ideas and share experiences as well as participating in a diverse range of activities from zine making to poetry, performance to workshops.
