First Waves; Exploring the past, present and future impact of Race Relation Laws

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.


Nottingham Contemporary art centre invites you to join us for a thought provoking, hands on creative workshop to explore the real legacy and impact of the Race Relation Acts, now and in the future. Come along as we share community stories and memories through art which highlight experiences of life in Nottingham and the UK over the past 50 years. This is also an opportunity for creative work to be exhibited in Nottingham and Houses of Parliament in 2019 as part of this project.

Supported by photographic artist Scarlett Crawford, First Waves commemorates 50 years since the 1968 Race Relations Act was introduced. Following earlier unsuccessful bills, the Act was the first UK legislation to forbid racial discrimination in public places on grounds of ‘colour, race, or ethnic or national origins’.

Free. No art experience/prior knowledge needed.
Materials, refreshments and travel costs available.
Workshop open to everyone with an interest in racial equality; we are particularly keen to hear from older people with experience of living in the UK during the 1960’s.
