Celebrating Culture in Cornwall : 22 Aug, Truro

August 22, 2021 | 1:00 pm
Lemon Quay, Truro

The Celebration of Culture Event will host a number of acts, artists and events specifically celebrating cultural diversity, focusing on members of the Ethnically Diverse Communities, and YES we absolutely include Cornish Nationals. Black Voices Cornwall are PROUD to be considered a Cornish organisation and NOT just an organisation in Cornwall. What makes this event different is that each act, event, stall, and artists will be accompanied by information cards and talks, so for example, if you are having your hair braided, it’s not just something you get done and then move on, there will be discussions and conversation about the style, where it originates from and the cultural importance. When you are trying your jerk chicken or patties, knowing where they originated from, what they look the way they do and why those particular flavours and spices are used and where in the world they come from. Black Voices Cornwall feel it is important that all of our residents in Cornwall feel they are represented, not only in industry but also in the arts and culture sector. Cornwall is moving towards becoming the City of Culture in 2025 and this is a great way to show the world that Cornwall is taking culture, race and ethnicity important and that we are not just ‘ticking a box’.
