The Malcom X Centre in Bristol is holding an event to celebrate diversity in the community of St Pauls. The day is funded by the Big Lottery and Platforma, and seeks to encourage ‘intergenerational and intercultural sharing’.
The event will feature stories, songs and games that are important to a variety of cultures in the community. The aim of the day is to allow visitors to learn from each other and add new traditions to the collective community.
The first part of the day (1-6 pm) is free and will include a dominoes competition, games outside in the Malcolm X yard, and singing circles featuring Jamaican, Somalia, English, Polish, Kurdish, Spanish (and more) songs to teach and share, with workshops and performances. There will be also be story-telling workshops.
Between 2-3 pm, there will be a dance session and a pop up market from 3 – 6 pm, promoting children’s books, and beauty products. In the evening, DMACuk & Tribe of Doris bring a showcase party night, bringing the best that Bristol’s diverse arts communities have to offer. Entry is from 7.30 pm til 2 am.
Children go free, and adults pay £8.
