Because its there

 

20 July - 12 October 2019

The exhibition ‘Because it’s there’ will examine human exploration: the desire to go beyond the horizon, climb the mountain, venture out across the ocean, fly among the stars, to discover something just because it’s there (or rumoured to be there).

Discover the tools and machinery that made navigation and exploration possible and uncover the stories of the brave people who took bold risks in their pursuit of new discoveries.

10am – 5pm

A night of Beloved - Toni Morrison

7pm - 9pm (doors 7pm)

A night of Beloved: An intersectional celebration of the politics of Toni Morrison in Wales

I will call them my people which were not my people: and her beloved which was not beloved. - Romans 9:25

Author, activist, teacher, and Nobel laureate, Toni Morrison had a presence that served as a beacon of hope for  many people of all walks of life.  Her works (1973) Sula, (1992) Playing in the Dark, and (1998) Beloved hold a special place for women of colour and the Black and Minority Ethnic Queer community. In honour of Black History month and this icon's recent passing, we invite you to attend a celebration in honour of Toni Morrison and her impact in our own political communities of Wales:

This is a collaborative event organised by the Aberystwyth University’s Interdisciplinary Gender Studies Research Group (IGSRG), the Aberystwyth University Equality and Diversity team, and the Critical Cultural Politics and Racialisation Research Group (CCPR)  with support from the Ceredigion museum.

Tomos, originally from Aberystwyth, performed at the Museum in November 2018 to a sold out audience with his band 7Steps, and was here back in September with his Welsh jazz/folk outfit Burum. For this concert he has assembled a crack band of many of the best players from the South Wales jazz scene. Expect a night of burning jazz.
