    A weekend inspired by Hayward Gallery exhibition In the Black Fantastic

    Explore three days of music, poetry, comedy, film and talks celebrating the breadth of contemporary Black art and culture.

    Through myth, science fiction, spiritual traditions and Afrofuturism, artists recontextualise the past and invoke a future where Blackness thrives.

    Special guest curator Inua Ellams presents two events to open the weekend, with new poetry commissions responding to the themes.
