Beyond the Voyage is an immersive event featuring young British artists who will explore stories and experiences of migration, integration and what it means to be a person of dual heritage living in the UK.
The event is presented by WOKE., a project conceived by artist and filmmaker Nacheal Catnott as a platform to promote and support artists of colour.
Young British artists are invited to collaborate on this event alongside Elsie Ayotunde Cullen, artist and founder of Our Peoples and Ayo Early Years, and Joke Valerie Amusan, final year student and the voice behind blog and Instagram handle She Stands Firm.
