Join artists and speakers from the Maokwo Fusion Artists Network to wrap up Black History Month with an evening of performance and discussion.
Facilitated by Maokwo – an emerging, migrant-led company supported by the Belgrade’s Springboard talent development programme – this live event will be divided into two parts, followed by a chance to visit the Black Futures exhibition in the Theatre foyer.
Kicking off the evening, performance poets John Bernard and Chrissie Okorie will use spoken word to convey what Black Futures means to them. A second, interactive performance will follow, with Maokwo Artistic Director, storyteller and body adornment artist Laura Nyahuye joined by designer, storyteller and lecturer Pam Samasuwo-Nyawiri for an on-stage exploration and celebration of difference.
This double-bill of creative reflection will ask questions about how we communicate the need for change, and celebrate the diverse backgrounds and specialisms we draw upon to do so.
If you are unable to attend the live event, the performance will be shared online with a live Q&A at 7pm on Saturday 31st October. You can book tickets for the live streaming via Eventbrite.
