HAIRitage, a short film exploring Black hair in Britain

HAIRitage: We asked Black men and women of East London to share their opinions and experiences of living with Black hair in Britain.

Whilst some simply shared their favourite hairstyles, others explored the more serious topic of how their hairstyle choices impact their identity. This film explores how and why Black women have been made to feel that their hair is inferior.

Eastside Community Heritage seeks to build, service and enable partnerships which record, document and preserve the experiences of different communities, through the provision of social, cultural, educational and historical activities.

Our methodology incorporates education and training, with schools, families and adult learners. Eastside produces exhibitions, publications and multi media stimuli which are an opportunity for all cultures and age ranges to engage in a proactive discovery of their own and their community’s history, culture and heritage.

‘Let go for African food.’ What does that mean?

African food is lovely and allows for a variety of new taste sensations, it can also be the key to a healthier lifestyle, which is far from the impression of ‘soul food’ that many have.

Take the opportunity to enjoy tasty and healthy cuisine from the South and West Africa while helping to create a focus around African cuisine and become acquainted with the region’s rich culinary traditions.

Ivy Garsjø invites all food lovers on a journey where we will explore healthy African-inspired dishes, based on healthy traditional recipes and ingredients that are easy to find in Norway.

Bring good friends and enjoy the evening!

FEAST with Ivy!
