October 2017
To 4 November - Black Sound, BCA

Black Sound tells the story of 100 years of musical creativity and DIY ingenuity. Overcoming the majority status quo of the music industry, Black British music has migrated from the margins to re-master the mainstream. This exhibition celebrates the pioneers that made it happen – the players, the promoters, the producers and the punters that changed Britain’s cultural history.

This timely exhibition combines sound, moving image and archive material, to dynamically tell the story of Black British music. Black Sound takes you through three phases of this musical journey: Original Imports, D.I.Y Culture and Re-mastering the Mainstream. These themes are consistent throughout the history of Black British music, linking individuals, generations and genres – tracking the evolution of multi-cultural Britain through sound.

Black Sound is a raw and energetic exhibition that draws on BCA’s archive collection of ephemera, photographs, vinyl, cassettes, and music tracks to showcase the musical heritage of Black people across the UK. This exhibition is co-curated by The Champion Agency and Lloyd Bradley in partnership with the BCA. Champion has been the BCA’s creative partner since its opening and designed the acclaimed Staying Power exhibition. Lloyd Bradley, author of the critically acclaimed anthology of Black British music Sounds Like London:100 Years of Black Music in the Capital (2013) has developed the narrative, which sews together rich social history with a powerful soundscape of black Britain. Audio-guided tours will feature as part of the exhibition experience and visitors can listen to a mix of the top 100 most seminal albums from the last 100 years.

Free admission. The exhibition experience includes an audio-guided tour for £3. Tuesday – Saturday, 10.00am – 6.00pm (last entry 5.30pm)

19-20 October – International Policy Dialogue Conference on Money, Security and Democratic Governance in Africa, Bamako, Mali

The Council for Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS) announce an international conference on Money, Security and Democratic Governance in Africa that will be held in Bamako, Mali on October 19-20, 2017. This conference forms part of CODESRIA’s ongoing engagement with the issues of security and governance in Africa. UNOWAS’ involvement reflects its leading role in addressing security and governance issues in West Africa and the Sahel, which suffer from many of the issues that will occupy this conference.

Security, governance and money are intimately linked. Governance challenges are known to fuel insecurity and insecurity in turn undermines efforts at promoting good governance in many countries. Illicit financial flows have a tendency to subvert good governance and fuel insecurity in many countries. The illicit proceeds of transnational organized crime, including drugs and human trafficking have become big contributors to governance challenges in Africa. Illicit funds have permeated, and compromised electoral and governance processes and structures in a number of countries. Further, many groups are known to use proceeds from various forms of trafficking to purchase arms and pay for their operations. Difficulties in domestic resource mobilization undercut the ability of states and supra-state entities to provide adequate security. Countries and regional organizations often depend heavily on external funding for their operations raising new concerns.

New efforts to reinforce security agencies in response to insurgencies and terrorism also raise concerns over a resurgence of the state security paradigm after the rise of human security in the 1990s. This return to the primacy of force not only crowds out investments in other vital areas of service delivery, but also threatens much of the progress made in focusing on the links between governance and security.
