Part of the Radical Ancestry season

We will be joined by local artists, Josh Ramsden and Ruvimbo Bliss Munodawafa, who will share their poetry and films alongside a presentation of two moving-image works by artist Zinzi Minott. Zinzi, whose work is currently on display at FACT until 19 June, will screen works from her Fi Dem series. The series began in 2018 and since then, a new iteration of the work is released each year.

Zinzi’s works explore both the histories of the Windrush Generation, and broader histories and experiences of Blackness, migration, and living in the diaspora. Each iteration is a visual manifestation of a year lived: lives moved and moving. Within Let the Song Hold Us, FACT presents the 2022 instalment: Fi Dem V - A Redemptive Song, developed in response to Liverpool.

The Merseyside Caribbean Centre provides culture, learning and social events for the Caribbean and wider community.

As well as experiencing artworks by local and national artists, there will be food, drinks and a music playlist curated by Ashley Coker. We will also be joined by Tonika from the Windrush CIC, attending to offer information and advice.
