How often do we claim empowerment from exploring the situations and environments that we emerged from?

This two-hour event, programmed as part of Black History Month, will be split into different segments; screening, discussion and performance. Join facilitator Elliss Eyo-Thompson and others in a reflective discourse that aims to inspire and empower. Aside from the screening, there will be a special guest joining the host of the event live in conversation, as well as a performance from some guest artists.

The focus of the evening will be a screening of Delado: Rising from the Ashes, a documentary which delves into the tension of Liverpool 8 following the Toxteth riots in 1981, when local underdogs emerged as a performance collective under the wing of Ghanaian performance teachers. Join us for a Black History month event with special guests, centring the screening of the Delado documentary, about a performance collective who rose from the ashes of Toxteth riots in 1981.
