1963 to 2023. Sixty years on from Dr Martin Luther King’s historic ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. What is our dream today? In this Windrush 75 year, The Dream Sixty season explored how to answer this question through new music releases, podcasts, and live performance from the amazing Dream Sixty Choir.

Nathaniel Coltrane Wilson
Nathaniel and his creative collaborator Philth paid 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. Thank you to those that launched the mural with us and celebrated this important history, and the vibrancy of Hyson Green today.
LeftLion and New Art Exchange have been collaborating on a project to document and publish the stories of people from Nottingham who were part of the Windrush generation.
This event was the official premiere of a new series of short films created as part of this project, all filmed at the New Art Exchange during August and September. The films will be introduced by the Director Curtis Powell and many of the interviewees will be our special guests at this event.
You will also be able to read written versions of the interviews in this months issue of LeftLion magazine and online at here
Following the event we’re proud to release the films below.
