About the Event

Bringing together two intertwined strands, This festival celebrates Black cultural production and critical inquiry and seeks to explore the structures that make Blackness seem natural, self-evident, and variously foreign across Europe.

At UCL, this concludes the 2023-24 [Black Europe] speakers’ series, which has aimed to challenge the notion of Europe as a white space, and to highlight the gaps in studies of race in Europe and in colonial contexts.

At SOAS, this festival caps off the Centre for Migration and Diaspora Studies’ speakers and film series Artistic Activism and Solidarity in an Age of Borders and Hostile Environments.

Join us for an evening of drinks and networking as we celebrate the first day of the Festival.

This event will be held in the SOAS Upstairs Cloisters.
