Melanin Fest Sheffield 2017

1st-31st October 2017, Sheffield City Centre

A celebration of Black History Month, October 2017, organised by Our Mel co-hosted by Gabriela Thompson Menanteaux and Annalisa Toccara. Our Mel is a grassroots volunteer community dedicated to exploring cultural identity, Black history and what it means to be a person of colour in Britain today. Inspired by two local lasses on a journey of self-love, Our Mel was born in November 2016 over a pack of caramel biscuits and a cup of tea - Yorkshire of course.

Events for Black History Month could be happening near you; 31 days poetry/open mic, art exhibitions, dance, music, seminars, drama, speakers, workshops and film. Workshops include opportunities for people of all ages, races and religious backgrounds to gather together in a safe environment to discuss and learn about everyday issues surrounding people of colour in today’s society.

Full schedule and more information will be available on the website, or email info@ourmel.org.uk.

Viking Economics

Sun 15 Oct 2017, 7.30pm Quaker Meeting House, St James St

George Lakey, anti-war activist, author and founder of the Training for Change nonviolence training collective has turned his attention to the economics of inequality, penning Viking Economics - billed as “perhaps the most fun economics book you’ve ever read”. He explores the inner workings of the Nordic economies that boast the world’s happiest, most productive workers, and explains how, if we can enact some of the changes the Scandinavians fought for surprisingly recently, we, too, can embrace equality in our economic policy.
