  • Art. Exhibition. 50 Years of Leeds West Indian Carnival. Leeds

    12 Aug - 29 Oct

    50 Years of Leeds West Indian Carnival

    The Tetley


    Hunslet Road
    LS10 1JQ

    Leeds

    England


    Curated by Sonya Dyer, the exhibition reflects two journeys at the heart of the story of Leeds Carnival: the journey of carnival from its West African roots to Leeds via the Caribbean, and the journey of Leeds Carnival from humble beginnings to the highlight in Leeds’ cultural calendar it is today.

    Each gallery has a key object such as a photograph, costume or video that other items engage with, pivot around, contextualise or complicate. Going beyond simply celebrating the Leeds Carnival’s 50th anniversary, it also situates it as a vital force in Leeds, the UK and across the Caribbean diaspora. The exhibition is part of a wider programme of events and activities across the city including a satellite display at West Yorkshire Playhouse.
