Writing on the Wall Festival
Through words, music, lyrics, song, dance and discussion, Writing on the Wall calls upon you to explore the legacy of slavery and exalt in the history of rebellion, as Liverpool celebrates 800 years as the bastard outcast of the British Isles, and 200 years since the abolition of a trade, the mark of which runs though our history like a name through Blackpool rock.
This year's festival themes are justice and resistance. Slavery past
and persecution present, through Hillsborough and Shrewsbury, taking in
the music of Coltrane, the poetry of Africa, and the sounds of Black Liverpool.
The festival is on from 14th - 19th May 2007.
