You are invited to join us for our Black History Month Celebration! We have been working with the musical directors of Bristol Reggae Orchestra to commission new music to be premiered at a special performance during this event. And we are in the process of publishing a commemorative book of The Pioneers with portraits of the Windrush Elders in Bristol by photographer Garfield McKenzie, together with life stories and reminiscences collected by Wendy Leocque. You will be able to preview the book and order your copies in advance. There will be refreshments, with a delicious Caribbean buffet provided by Glen's Kitchen, and it's all free!
Book your free ticket via eventbrite, please note numbers are limited so only book if you are sure you can attend. Thanks!
Windrush Alternative Photography Workshops
Celebrate the arrival and contribution of the Windrush generation in Bristol with a series of unique photography workshops at St Pauls Darkrooms inviting you to explore and experiment with some vintage photographic processes. The workshops are free and are open to adults and educators of history and art at all levels from primary to university. They are designed to assist educators and interested people to learn about the Windrush event and examine themes of migration, commonwealth and empire alongside the traditional photographic processes of the time.
