Join us as we share the art of traditional storytelling, dance, drumming and song, to learn more about Black African Heritage. We are bringing local children together with community members, and we want you to come and share with us in this exciting and uplifting production event.LightUp Black and African Heritage Calderdale has one of its core aims to protect and safeguard African culture and heritage in Calderdale:“As custodians of Black and African Culture and Heritage BAHC we want to find ways to commission African cultural and social events: to promote and raise the profile of the Black African community in the region, and facilitate a better understanding of African culture and heritage within other local communities. This will include developing ways to help shine light the multifarious aspects of individual countries and people’s culture from precolonial and colonial times.” Bola Adams, Director LIGHT UP BAHCVerd de gris arts works to promote and celebrate cultural heritage in communities across the North of England. We are particularly interested in the ways in which cultural heritage can help minority / marginalised communities respond to community identity, racial intolerance, health and well-being inequalities, social and economic disadvantage.To book contact: Sharon Marsden 07907 822323 or Bola Adams 07550699459Keep up to date with other events as they happen by following our Facebook page Verd de gris arts and on Twitter and InstagramTwitter @verddegrisInstagram @verddegris
