To celebrate Black History Month and the 50th anniversary of the UK’s pioneering Race Relations Act, four artists including photographer and artist, Vanley Burke; illustrator Olivia Twist; documentary photographer Ines Elsa Dalal and artist Abian Richards, were commisioned to create new pieces of work to be exhibited at Birmingham's Millennium Point for the duration of the month. The opening night of the exhibition consisted of spoken word performances inspired by the new art works from Akala.
