The history of Caribbean Carnivals is much more complex than many realise. Carnival has origins based in colonialism and religious conversion, but it has now become a festival and celebration tied to freedom and emancipation from slavery. Learn about how established African-Caribbean communities transferred the traditions associated with carnival to Manchester as we explore the roots of the different aspects of carnival.
This workshop is suitable for age 14+
A family workshop on 26 October is also available.
Part of the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah RACE Centre and Education Trust’s We Are Carnival! a series of free events for Black History Month to mark the city’s celebrations of 50 years of Manchester’s Caribbean Carnival.
