#researchfindings Black Arts in London was a fortnightly magazine detailing all the Black arts and culture events happening in the capital, as well as around the country. Sold mainly through independent books stores, the magazine included details on job vacancies, bursaries and industry news and reviews along side listings for black TV shows, films, theatre and music. The copies carried within the Stuart Hall Library would imply it ran from the early 1980s to the mid to later 1990s. And was sustained by public and private funding by British art councils, groups and sponsors. _ #researchfindings #researchfinds #researchspotlight INIVA #stuarthalllibrary #Blackartinlondon #magazine #blackart #london #research #library #visualculture #libraryfind #volunteership #libraryvolunteer #phdlife #phdcandidate #phdresearch #blackbritishhistory #blackbritain #history #blackculture #getperspective #blacksound #archivematerial #archives #librariesandarchives
#researchfindings Today at the Stuart Hall Library I stumbled upon this wonderful find! Black Arts in London was a fortnightly magazine detailing all the Black arts and culture events happening in the capital, as well as around the country. Sold mainly through independent books stores, the magazine included details on job vacancies, bursaries and industry news and reviews along side listings for black TV shows, films, theatre and music. While I am unsure of the mags publishing dates. The copies carried within the library would imply it ran from the 1980s to the mid to later 1990s. _ #researchfinds #researchspotlight #INIVA #stuarthalllibrary #Blackartinlondon #magazine #blackart #london #research #library #visualculture #libraryfind #volunteership #libraryvolunteer #phdlife #phdcandidate #phdresearch #blackbritishhistory #blackbritain #history #blackculture #getperspective #blacksound #archivematerial #archives #librariesandarchives

🚀Today marks the 50th anniversary of the 1969 Moon Landing! Britten wrote a piece titled 'Young Apollo' in 1939 which seems rather fitting to share today given Apollo also lends his name to the moon missions. ⁠ If that doesn't sate your thirst for sci-fi and music check out our Work of the Week for Tyco the Vegan, Britten's space opera that never was - link in bio. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #TheRedHouse #BrittenPears #BrittenOfficial #moonlanding #space #moon #manuscript #archivematerial #composition #score #compose #music #spaceopera #culture #history #localhistory #aldeburgh #suffolk #suffolkcoast #instapic #instadaily #instagood #travelpic #travelgram #travelgood #picoftheday #photooftheday⁠
