Rooted in Yorkshire and based in Sheffield, Our Mel is a social enterprise dedicated to exploring cultural identity, Black history and what it means to be a person of colour in Britain today.
Inspired by two local lasses on a journey of self-love, Our Mel was born in November 2016 over a pack of caramel biscuits and a cup of tea, Yorkshire of course.
Since its birth, it has grown into a community of young people on a mission is to support, encourage, teach and build the Sheffield community through music, film, arts and education and last year launched its first city wide fringe festival; Melanin Fest, in celebration of Black History month in the UK.
