Young Producers x Comuzi: The Making of Decentralise

Tue 16 Mar 2021

To mark the launch of Decentralise, the Young Producers join Comuzi in conversation for a streamed discursive event, giving viewers the chance to meet the Young Producers virtually, and hear about the inspiration and collaborative journey.

The event will also feature a guided demonstration on how users can build their very own decentralised archives using the site.

Launching in 2021 Somerset House’s Young Producers collective presents its inaugural co-production project, Decentralise, a new digital platform exploring the re-interpretation of Black history, heritage and culture at Somerset House, in collaboration with innovative design studio and Somerset House Studios residents COMUZI and project partners Pinterest.

The Young Producers collective, which launched in October 2020 as part of Somerset House’s Engagement and Skills programme and offers development and support to young creatives who are underrepresented in the cultural sector, comprised of six London-based emerging creatives aged 18-30 who have worked closely with COMUZI to co-create and co-produce a digital resource which seeks to re-centre Black people in the cultural history at Somerset House.

Decentralise forms part of Somerset House’s recent Anti-racism Pledge, which commits to updating the historical information currently understood on Somerset House and its role in Britain’s colonial past and making these resources widely available.
