YOUnity is a programme of three commissioned community led events by, with and for our neighbourhood in Hyson Green.
The events will be celebrating Black History Month and the 75th anniversary of the Windrush, and we invite you to join us for a vibrant day of creativity and celebration.
ALL WELCOME | NO NEED TO BOOK, JUST DROP IN
Nathaniel Coltrane Wilson | FROM 12PM | FREE
Nathaniel and his creative collaborator Philth will be paying homage to the Windrush Generation by developing a Street Art Mural which celebrates sound system culture, and the positive impact immigration has had on our country. Nottingham Soundsystem culture was prominent in Hyson Green, and this vibrant culture brought together people from diverse backgrounds, and had a profound impact on the community, shaping the way people view music and dance. Join us as we launch the mural and celebrate this important history, and the vibrancy of Hyson Green today.
Nathaniel will be doing a talk on site from 1.15PM.
