Live sessions

We were delighted to run a series of live events throughout October 2022 to celebrate Black History Month. These sessions showcased many inspiring topics and themes, which we hope will provide further thought and reflection. We are very proud and thankful of our academics, students and external guests who contributed to these wonderful sessions. For any queries about any of the live sessions that were delivered, please contact us at
