artistic representation and collaboration.
More specifically, we
support independent artists,
curate collaborative artistic efforts,
share a broad spectrum of perspectives and opinions,
develop independent and commissioned projects,
and host inclusive events.
Our underlying mandate is
to promote social justice
between groups and individuals across the planet,
specifically drawing on our networks in the U.K. and West Africa.
At Gold Host,
we are committed to world-building.
that this can only be achieved by
expanding our awareness of
the breadth of humanity.
everyone has the right to express themselves
and be heard.
Expression is the tool of world-building.
We are defined by
our pledge to the making of worlds
that place the restoration of our shared humanity and interspecies relations
at the centre of its universe.
We're here to host humanity.
draws on the prophetically complete work of Cameroonian philosopher,
Achille Mbembe in Critique of Black Reason (2017)
“There is therefore only one world,
at least for now,
and that world is all there is.
What we all therefore have in common is
the feeling or desire that each of us must be a full human being.
The desire for the fullness of humanity is something we all share.
And, more and more,
we also all share the proximity of the distant.
Whether we want to or not,
the fact remains that we all share this world.
It is all there is, and all that we have.
To build a world that we share,
we must restore the humanity
stolen from those
who have historically been subjected to
the processes of abstraction and objectification.
From this perspective,
the concept of reparation
is not only an economic project
but also a process of reassembling amputated parts,
repairing broken links,
relaunching the forms of reciprocity
without which there can be no progress for humanity.
For, in the end, there is only one world.
It is composed of a totality of a thousand parts.
Of everyone. Of all worlds.”
