Black Women are Blossoming
 
The Black Blossoms Exhibition celebrates and highlights the voices of Black Women, a group which is often invisible, silenced and oppressed in society. Through film, photography and illustration recent UAL graduates have explored the intersections of gender, race and identity. This exhibition challenges and deconstructs stereotypes in order to re-establish an authentic and inclusive narrative of Black Womanhood.
 
The exhibition has been curated by Education Officer (15-16) and Black Blossoms founder Bee Tajudeen.

There will be a programme of events that run along side the 
exhibition, for more information please visit blackblossoms.org .
