Southbank Centre
Public Party as Protest

Asset 2

Often, key moments become the catalyst for public celebrations designed to protest injustice, bridge cultural gaps and build community: Notting Hill Carnival started in response to the Notting Hill Race Riots of 1958 and similarly, Pride started to commemorate the Stone Wall riots.

Introduced by Sarah Tarry (Public Programme Producer), with chair Tim Other (Raze Collective) and panelists Naeem (BBZ) and Wesley Dykes (Cocoa Butter Club, Purple Rain Collective).
