Dr Robbie Shilliam talks about his ongoing public engagement work through a variety of projects and research, which includes the ‘Rastafari: The Majesty and the Movement’ project. As part of an organising committee entitled Rastafari Regal Livity (CiC) Dr Shilliam worked with members of the Rastafari faith in Ethiopia and the UK for over two and a half years co-researching and co-producing an exhibition of 14 text-and-image A1 panel displays and 5 audio-visual short documentaries.
Dr Shilliam has also been a part of the Portrayal and Perceptions: Tottenham Youth in Contemporary Britain. The project aimed to critically address the negative portrayal and self-perceptions of young Black people, primarily from Tottenham, following the 2011 London riots.
