Join us for this thought-provoking discussion session hosted by We Don't Settle in collaboration with the University of Birmingham's Research and Cultural Collections.

Tiya is part of our Africanize project, aimed at fostering dynamic exchanges of ideas and experiences around collected objects and art. Through engaging dialogue and interactive exercises, participants will delve into the stories behind the objects, revitalizing their narratives and gaining a deeper appreciation for African heritage.

What to Expect

  • Lively discussions on the cultural significance of objects and their connection to heritage
  • Brain-boosting activities to ignite creativity and individual expression, guided by our artist-in-residence, Sipho Eric Ndlovu
  • Fresh viewpoints and connections with like-minded enthusiasts devoted to exploring Africa's rich heritage
  • Refreshments will be provided!

We believe inclusivity is key, and whether you're a seasoned thought leader or new to contributing to meaningful conversations, you'll find a supportive community ready to embrace you and celebrate your contributions with open arms. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to explore history and narratives through conversation.
