Supported by Culture Liverpool, the Creative Organisations of Liverpool (a network of city arts venues) have curated a special programme which responds to the murder of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter campaign, highlighting the power that the arts can play in affecting change.
A number of brand new commissions will promote equality and justice through a range of art forms and will also be a celebration of Liverpool’s black community which is the oldest black community in Europe.
The commissions include:
All events taking place outdoors will be covid-safe, and will follow government guidelines.
A further announcement will be made in the coming weeks about an exciting month-long music celebration to coincide with Black History Month, which will include live online performances, documentary screenings, podcasts and ‘in conversation with’ events.
The commissions have been made possible thanks to the Mayoral Fund.
“It’s fantastic to see our cultural sector come together with such a thought-provoking and engaging series of events.
“Now more than ever it is so important that we shine a spotlight on the black community and celebrate their outstanding achievements and contribution to society.
“This varied programme gives us the opportunity to do just that, and against the back drop of the Black Lives Matters protests and the horrific killing of George Floyd, there’s a real resonance around the importance of Black History Month and sends a message we will stand in solidarity with all of our communities facing racial discrimination.”
“Black History Month 2020 could not be more vital following the global protest that has laid bare enduring structural inequality.
“It’s fantastic that COoL and a number of our creative partners have collaborated to produce such a strong, diverse and vibrant Black History Month offer which is growing year on year.
“On behalf of COoL I’d like to thank Culture Liverpool and the Mayor’s office for their generous support.”
