In addition to a Monday weekly broadcast on Brent Community Radio, film maker and community educator Toyin Agbetu’s latest feature documentary ‘Beauty Is…’, which examines what it means to be attractive when viewed through the topic of hair, skin shade, body image and character, has been added to this Saturday’s Harrow Mayor’s Community Open Day programme at north London’s Harrow Civic Centre.
This special matinee screening during the mid term holidays is aimed at families. Accordingly, although the Open Day is free, there is a £10 charge per adult, but they must be accompanied by a child or youth who have free entry. The screening starts at 1pm, followed by a Q&A with Toyin and author Kandace Chimbiri.
Booking must be made via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-beauty-is-family-matinee-screening-tickets-11743265423?ref=ebtnebregn
An added attraction to the Family Fun Day strand is Jay Rawlings, who is known as ‘Walkabout Magician’. He’s guaranteed to delight children and families with his close-contact magical skills.
The Open Day also consists of a Community Fair including Black Music Records & African Crafts & Fair, Who I Am & What I Do Networking, and the launch of British Black Music Month (BBMM) 2014.
The BBMM launch includes ‘London & The Great British Black Music Quiz’; ‘Sounds Like London: 100 Years Of Black Music In London’ reading and Q&A with author Lloyd Bradley; screening of ‘Soul Searching’ (1981) and ‘Let The Music Talk’ (1991), which precedes the Addressing Diversity & Racial Equality seminar led by ‘Let the Music Talk’ director/producer Yvonne Deutschman and The Monitoring Group director Suresh Grover; a panel-less debate entitled 'Should British Black Music Be Concerned About Social Issues?'; plus a seminar on Running A legal Web Radio Station with Fusion Sound Radio, who will end the last hour by playing the Top 20 Most Favourite British Black Music Tracks.
BBBMM2014 continues until July 26. For more details: harrowopenday2014.eventbrite.com, or www.BBM.eventbrite.com.
