Friday Late: Threads

We explore how Black and Asian histories and voices recorded and remembered today.

THREADS
31 August 2018
18.30 – 22.00
Black and Asian histories are a vital part of Britain’s fabric. How are these voices recorded and remembered today? Join us this Friday Late as we reframe the archive and put untold histories on the map. See dancers explore hybrid identities and hear poets recount stories of inheritance. From improvised music to independent publishing, celebrate those claiming space and building new communities on the foundations of heritage.
A collaboration between Historic England and the V&A.
