Resistance as an Act of Public Pedagogy was a virtual panel discussion that brought together five artists with African origins—Rikki Wemega-Kwawu, Laiwan, Linda Mvusi, Shaheen Merali, and Zainub Verjee—for an active engagement about their practices, experiences of resistance, and histories of decolonization. The event was moderated by Narendra Pachkhédé.

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Speech Acts: Zainub Verjee at Centre A in 2021, co-presented by Western Front.
