The Big Woke Show delves into the film archives to see how woke the university has been over the past 100 years. Is all this still acceptable in 2023 or is there an urgent need for censorship?
Thursday 19 October (7:45pm and 9:15pm) and Friday 20 October (6:45pm and 8:15pm) | Spinoza lecture hall
The Big Woke Show
The Big Woke Show investigates it together with the audience, who is presented with a number of fragments under the leadership of presenter Stef. What did you actually see? Was there something wrong with that? And how should it be? There is a good chance that the audience and Stef will not be able to solve it either, but fortunately the expert side-kick can then be called upon to prevent everyone from going into a cramp, unless it is from laughter.
About SHALLOT design
Graphic designer Charlotte van der Wiel became one of the three Artists-in-Residence of Radboud University with one of her prize-winning animations. From that role, she started working with the heritage, stories and people of Radboud University with the aim of making a film. Only that film did not become a film, but a quiz.
'Diversity, equality and inclusion, we hear about it and we want to change, but many people don't know how,' says Charlotte. 'With The Great Woke Show I want to bring up the subject in an accessible way, which can be laughed at. Because if we can laugh about it together, we don't have to be afraid of doing it wrong, and we can start a change.'
Radboud Art & Science Festival
This event is part of Radboud Art & Science. On 19, 20 and 21 October, immerse yourself in the world of art and science on the university campus.
Let yourself be transported to the past through music, film, and dance. Walk past photo exhibitions, light installations and visual art that give you a unique perspective of the campus. There will also be live concerts, performances, and interactive performances in unexpected places. In doing so, we delve into the university's heritage, history and day-to-day operations, and explore the stories of students, researchers and other staff.
Entrance to Radboud Art & Science is free and everyone is welcome. Will you be there?
