Art, Literature and Environmental Justice

The role of arts in the fight for environmental justice in West Africa and beyond.

Just over twenty years ago writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight Ogoni activists were executed by the Nigerian military government for their campaign against the exploitation of the Niger Delta by Shell. A panel of writer Helon Habila, artists Sokari Douglas Camp and Michael McMillan, designer Jon Daniel and artist-campaigner Suzanne Dhaliwal discuss the role of the arts in the fight for environmental justice in West Africa and beyond. The event is chaired by curator David A Bailey, MBE.

In association with Platform London.
