Strong, British & Black Film Projection: Staff & Students

Exclusive event especially for Keele University staff & students.

As part of the programme of activities linked to the 'Strong, British & Black' exhibition currently on display in Chancellor's Building on campus, and as part of a programme for Black History Month we are excited to welcome you to an external screening taking place on the side of the University chapel using projection.

'Strong, British and Black' showcases the art of black and brown women living and working in Staffordshire and has been developed by Kwanzaa Collective UK*. Building on the themes of the Cultural Affairs 'I AM' exhibition (2019) this exhibition centres the voices of black and brown women to explore what it means to be Strong, British and Black. Using film, photography, painting, poetry, sculpture and digital art, the artists explore the themes of the exhibition individually, while looking at how they interact. What does it mean to a strong woman? What does it mean to be Strong and Black? What does it mean to be Black British in a country that often considers you Black in Britain?

The projection event will feature some stills of artwork from the show plus three film based screenings of short related art films.

There are four time slots to view the projection (6:30pm, 7pm, 7:30pm & 8pm) with a limit of 20 spaces on Union Square. Please click on the button below to book.

Each ticket is per individual or per household/bubble of 6 people max. We will need further information of all the guests included in your ticket to help us support campus efforts towards COVID-19 track and trace. 

We are encouring attendees to download and use the NHS Track & Trace app as well as the Keele University SafeZone app.
