Event description
An exhibition for Black History Month

About this Event

Let Our Legacy Continue is a collaboration between the Caribbean Social Forum, and the University of Greenwich’s Applied Sociology and Drama Theatre and Performance Research Groups.

From the Caribbean to the UK to Lockdown, we carry and re-remember stories of where we came from, journeys and first impressions. We do what we have always done to survive and thrive. We adapt and refresh skills. We innovate, create and re-create. This project uses visual art, sound, music and words to capture and celebrate the rich material of our unique Caribbeaness as reflected in our everyday lives.

Our journey ends with an exhibition which we invite you to travel through, marking the beginning of a new adventure. When visiting the exhibition you will encounter a layered experience of video, audio and imagery. The experience is expected to take no more than 45 minutes to travel through.

This exhibition will be located in the Stephen Lawrence Gallery at the University of Greenwich, Stockwell Street site. It will be open to the public from Friday, 2 October 2020 until Wednesday, 28 October 2020.
