Launch of the Liverpool Arts and Culture Race Equality Manifesto

Pagoda Arts,
65 Henry Street, Liverpool
L1 5BU (see map)


Liverpool’s arts and culture organisations, large and small, have been working collectively to provide a set of principles and a plan for actively promoting greater race equality across Liverpool’s arts and culture sector. Galvanized by the Black Lives Matter movement and catalysed by the murder of George Floyd, the two consortia of Creative Organisations of Liverpool (COoL) and Liverpool Arts Regeneration Consortium (LARC) have developed a Race Equality Manifesto that will anchor a campaign for change in their organisations’ workforces and governance, the work they do with artists, and the audiences they engage with.

The evening is will be a celebration of local creativity, featuring two of the city’s most celebrated poets, Levi Tafari and Amina Atiq, as well as a short film and food. Speakers will include Lorna Rogers from the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority Race Equality Hub.
