In association with BlackFest:

BlackFest is a grassroots Liverpool Black arts festival founded in 2018. It showcases an eclectic mix of work from Black creatives, across community spaces and established venues. The program includes dance, visual arts, music, film, spoken word and theatre. The Festival answers a crucial need in the city’s cultural offering, celebrating Black arts and bridging the gap between institutions and the marginalised communities they represent. In 2019 BlackFest encompassed active conversations and collaborations with established arts organisations.

BlackFest highlights work by, and creates new platforms for anyone who is marginalised for their race or ethnicity.
