Black History Month 2023: The Art of Community
As we gather together once again to celebrate Black History Month, we reflect on the ways in which we define what community means to us. Throughout the years, it is often community carrying us through the ebbs and flow of life. It is with community, that the fire for great change is fuelled. Through community, we have birthed the art forms, genres and cuisines that we celebrate today. Despite the challenging past, and present, we would like to take a moment to pause and celebrate each other as we look ahead together, towards the future.
Produced by Alyshia Jack (Student Communities Officer), Katwamba Mutale (London College of Fashion Officer), and Daniela Commey (Union Affairs Officer), this year's schedule includes 3 exhibitions throughout UAL, in addition to an extensive events programme which you can explore below. All is underpinned by the notion that community is the backbone of creativity. From buttons to thread, hundreds of hands come together every day for the purpose of creation. Community has, and continues to, hold a strength that champions creativity and leads us towards change.
We would like to thank University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins, the University Technical and Estates teams, and the Arts SU Communities and Arts Programme teams for their support.
