On 7 June 2018, members of the "PhEmaterialism" network from around the world are gathering for a conference at the UCL Institute of Education which explores how innovative new strategies can disrupt racism, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia, and the politics of terror and violence. 

The afternoon performance, 'Making da(r)ta matter' at the conference is open to the UCL Festival of Culture.

Through movement, sound, image and film, academics and artists will share their on-going creative and participatory research with young people (aged 12-18) living in the ex-mining, coal and steel towns of the south Wales valleys. 

The performance focuses on the transformative potential of these research-activist encounters to glimpse at how marginalized bodies are regulated by society and what it means to live through the complex entanglements of history, place, gender and movement.

The core issue explored in this performance is the disruption of youth-experienced gender and sexual harassment and violence by generating new ways of communicating 'research findings' to inform policy and practice in 21st century government and society.
