TRIBES: Matabeleland to Staffordshire

4 October @ 11:00 am - 5 November @ 3:00 pm


Kwanzaa Collective UK* and Appetite have partnered to launch a new month-long exhibition in Newcastle Town Centre titled Tribes: Matabeleland to Staffordshire. 

The exhibition, which will showcase the art of Black and Brown artists living and working in Staffordshire, is part of a cultural exchange with artists in Matabeleland, Zimbabwe. And so, as Tribes opens to the public in Newcastle Common on the High Street, it will also be running concurrently in Matabeleland. 

Artworks on display will include photography, film and digital painting reflecting on the theme of cultural heritage and documenting aspects of rich African culture such as body art, ceremonial dress, beadwork and piercings, their practice and relevance today.  Work by the Staffordshire artists will also explore lived experience of how their African cultural identity informs their life in the UK. 

During October there will also be artist residencies and half-term workshops to join in with at Newcastle Common in Astley Walk. More information on those will be in our What’s On section soon!

Here’s how you can see the Tribes: Matabeleland to Staffordshire exhibition:

Where: Newcastle Common, 23 High Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme, ST5 1QZ
