Future Meetings of the Fence

Meetings happen through collaboration and planning around a small core team based in-country and/or as part of the diaspora.

Currently planned meetings include:

  • Fence 29 - Guadeloupe, March 30-April 5, 2020
  • Fence 30 - Graz, June 10-14, 2020
  • Fence 31 - Mexico City, June 16-21, 2020
  • Fence 32 – Kherson, Ukraine, May 2021
  • Fence 33 – Lljubljana, Slovenia, Autumn 2021

The March 2020 Guadeloupe meeting will be in partnership with Memorial Acte, the contemporary museum offering historical exhibits on the Caribbean's slave trade & indigenous people. The focus of our meeting will relate to the institution and the wider issue of memory and forgetting.

This will be a largely Francophone meeting.
