Speaking Truth to Power was a forward thinking paper on the theme of ‘Identity, Aesthetics and Ethnicity’. To reflect the complexity of the terrain, Hybrid delivered Arts Council England’s first epistolary report. It was informed by national and international critical debates on the subject. It drew together qualitative research involving focus groups and one to one interviews with individuals from across England. Dissemination of the report included a filmed discussion with Bonnie Greer and Gus John and a ‘question time’ style launch with Baroness Professor Lola Young.
