Mounting a unique and historically significant exhibition of the presence and achievements of Liverpool’s musicians and entertainers of Black Origin.
Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.
The project will collate photographs, posters, memorabilia, video footage, and artefacts regarding the achievements of Liverpool musicians and entertainers of Black origin. All the material collected will form part of a public exhibition. The exhibition will be promoted on local, regional, national and social media, and through leaflets and posters. The Liverpool Central Library will host the exhibition for a week in the latter part of 2017. Paul Barber, the Liverpool actor who started his career in a local band in the 1960s, will formally open the exhibition. In January 2018, a concert will be held celebrating Liverpool musicians and entertainers of Black origin. Fourteen local bands and singers and two entertainers have agreed to participate in the concert for expenses. The photographs with explanatory texts from the exhibition will be displayed at the venue. We are negotiating with varies bodies to permanently house the exhibition.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
This project will tap into the groundswell of interest in the local community’s heritage. This can be gauged by the number of agencies, community groups, academics and individuals that are involved with HDCL in discovering and promoting Liverpool’s long established black presence, its achievements, challenges and legacy.
