Re:Generate a festival exploring drug policy and racial justice

A three day festival of arts will take place in Bermondsey next weekend - focused on current UK drug policies, and the impact they have on the black community. ReGenerate will use performance, exhibtions and debate to explore the connection between the war on drugs, and racial discrimination. It follows research which highlighted the disproportionate use of stop and search. Camille Barton is one of the festival's producers and Niamh Eastwood is the head of the drugs charity Release.
