This masterclass explores the extraordinary content generated in Bristol in lock-down and asks how the city will continue to capture issues of racism, inequality and black culture.

An extraordinary set of events unfolded in Bristol during lock-down, focusing the world’s media on the city’s dark slave trading legacy.

Bristol’s creative community had been long engaged on this topic, but in this moment a rare combination of timing, collaboration and ingenuity enabled grass-roots filmmakers and digital artists to flourish as the statue of slave trader Edward Colston toppled.

This panel (to be confirmed shortly) explores their imaginative, bold content and asks how the city and wider creative industries will continue to capture issues of racism, inequality and black culture in the light of the Black Lives Matter movement.
