Black History Month

Black history is important not only in October, but this is the month with many possibilities to explore and learn more about Black culture in the UK.

Time Out London has put together a list of 12 inspiring things to do in London this Black History Month. The list includes theatre (Romeo and Juliet, anyone?), ballet, events, exhibitions and food (always a good idea) among other things. 

Check out the list and pick your favourites to learn something new.

Camden - London
When you can!

Support Camden’s Afghan Crisis Response  

Many of you may be looking for ways to support refugees arriving in London from Afghanistan. Through Camden Council, here are a few ways you can help (even from around the world!). 

At the moment, most newly arrived Afghan Nationals are in hotels managed by central Government – either in quarantine or in hotels where their housing and wider support needs are being assessed. Donations, volunteers and interpreters are needed to help. 

You can donate through the Amazon Wish List. Hubs for in-person donations for will be updated on the Camden Council website. You can also contribute t the Hopsotch Women's Centre Fund or the Little Village Crisis Fund (for 0-5 year olds)

You an offer your time to volunteer through Time to Spare and if you speak any Afghan languages - Dari (Farsi) and Pashto, please contact the council directly to offer help interpreting.

Links for all of these options can be found below.

Bloomsbury
From 15 to 24 October

Bloomsbury Festival 

This year's theme for the festival is ‘Shining Light’. The programme places the stories of the people, places and cultures of Bloomsbury at it’s heart, taking the creative talent of local established institutions and adding in emerging talent with new themes and threads – shining light on the tradition of freethinking and celebrating the ‘rebels’ within Bloomsbury.

Newport Street Gallery
Until December 12

Richard Estes - Voyages

I just recently went to see this exhibition and definitely recommend it! The paintings look so real that you feel like you could just jump into the picture and join the life of the city or find yourself on the mountains of Nepal. 

This is said on the website about the exhibition: 

"Newport Street Gallery presents ‘Richard Estes: Voyages’, the first major exhibition of the artist’s work in the UK, 10 September – 12 December 2021.

The show, curated by Andrew Heyward, will include over forty-five paintings made over the last thirty years. While Estes is best known for his paintings of New York, the London show will also feature paintings made following trips to Europe, Asia, Africa and Antarctica.

Entry to the exhibition is free."
