About this event

Due to popular demand, have now added further screenings of The Active Ingredients of Liverpool, the final screening will coincide with International Mandela Day on 18 July'.

Initially screened during the Liverpool Against Racism festival, join us for further screenings of The Active Ingredients of Liverpool by Mandela8.

Filmed and produced in L8, this powerful film takes you on a journey of community activism in Liverpool, and the influence of people when they work together to achieve change. It aims to capture the legacy of activism of the area by remembering and recording important stories. The Active Ingredients of Liverpool brings together multiple generations, from the 1980s anti-apartheid campaigners to the young activists of today, to pass the baton on.

Mandela8 is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Its initial vision is to see a permanent artwork that functions as an unique performance, conversation and contemplation space established at a Toxteth Liverpool 8 heritage site, to celebrate, commemorate and pursue the legacy of Nelson Mandela’s outstanding achievement for humanity. The project will help to conserve and widely share existing historical and contemporary heritage, support community development and cohesion, produce a series of creative commissions and collaborations, with widespread community and educational engagement and participation.
