Event Details

More Than XY

A visual celebration of Black Fathers & Positive Male Role Models

We'd like to invite you to attend the official opening of our exhibition which will take place on Father's Day 2012 (June 17th). The event has been planned as a day for the family so all are welcomed.  


Thenublack and the forFATHERS project present MORE THAN XY - an exhibition that will celebrate the role of Fathers and positive role models in the Black community. The organisers of MORE THAN XY are mounting this show to increase the awareness of the fathers who are active parents in their children’s lives and to provide exposure for the artists expressing their views of fatherhood through visuals. The show is their way to challenge the often imbalanced portrayal of black men being absent fathers and negative role models. This exhibition celebrates not only the role of Black Fathers but also to highlight positive black male role models who play an integral part in the lives of young people growing up.


While realizing the importance of the individual voice, More Than XY is encouraging attendees of the show not only to view the works submitted but also to take part in the exhibition themselves by bringing photographs or images of their fathers/positive male role models to be placed on a message wall.


Research shows that reading aloud to children is vital because it helps them acquire the information and skills they need in life. The More Than XY show will therefore include a Storytime session which will include special guests reading some well loved children’s stories to a small group of children.
