New Black Narrative

New Black Narrative

1 May - 14 July 2024. 


Link Space, RWA, Queens Road, Bristol, BS8 1PX


1 May - 14 July 2024. 


Exploring themes such as Black intimacy, Black vulnerability and Black joy, this exhibition brings together members of the Bristol Black Creatives who meet monthly at The Trinity Centre in Bristol. 

Creatives from multiple disciplines have collaborated to create and exhibit as a collective to showcase the talent within the group.

This exhibition in the Link Space on the lower ground floor, is part of the DIASPORA! Festival, Celebrating Cultural Diversity Through the Arts.

DIASPORA! is a new arts festival for Bristol and the South West, presented by the Diverse Artists Network. Taking place this year for the very first time, 3-6 May 2024, the festival will platform and celebrate the wide variety of talent reflected in the region’s underrepresented cultural communities.

Working in collaboration with a host of iconic venues, community initiatives and well-loved institutions, DIASPORA! is set to be a vibrant celebration of people, music, film, poetry, dance, storytelling and much more.

It also aims to create a more connected region through vibrant exchanges, new artistic works, job opportunities and talent retention. In this way, it will help to redress the London-centric bent of the creative/ cultural industries.

For more information, including details of how to get involved, head to the DIASPORA! webpage.
