History of Carnival Workshops by Linford Sweeney (1), 5 October | Event in Manchester | AllEvents.in History of Carnival Workshops by Linford Sweeney (1)
Workshop exploring the history of Carnival led by Linford Sweeney, noted Black History Educator and Researcher

About this Event

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.
