BLACK GIRL FESTIVAL

Kachette continued its Sunday program of free community events with the UK's first Black Girl Festival Sunday 29th October. The sellout event was curated by Paula Akpan, co-founder of the I’m Tired Project and Nicole Crentsil, founder of Unmasked Women. Both women are passionate about celebrating and championing black women and wanted to create a festival that showcases London’s talented creative community of black British women. The event hosted workshops and panel discussions throughout the day covering a wide range of topics from employment and education to mental health and motherhood. There was also a marketplace and zine fair, food stalls, live poetry, DJ's and live music.
