Pockets of respite and calm to foster community care
At the height of the Black Lives Matter resurgence and the COVID-19 pandemic, it felt difficult to unpack what was happening all around us. It still feels this way in many ways, especially for Black and other people of colour worldwide. Some are searching for a space where they can be present, without judgement and obligation. During our festival, we are offering pockets of rest and calm, with the aim of making our wellbeing strand a permanent fixture in all our future programming.
