The MAC’s Beyond Windrush season commemorates the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the SS Empire Windrush. The SS Empire Windrush brought people from the Caribbean to the United Kingdom in 1948.

The events will highlight an era of change and of co-existing cultures, and visitors will enjoy a public programme of exhibitions, events, talks and debates from May to July 2018.

The season kicks off with the Phoenix Dance’s thrilling new dance piece celebrates the 70th anniversary of SS Empire Windrush’s arrival, bringing the first Caribbean migrants to the UK.

The work is a celebration of the rise of multicultural Britain with uplifting soundtracks of calypso, jazz, blues, gospel and reggae.
