London’s Notting Hill Carnival is coming under increasing pressure and attacks from the British press, politicians, police and local residents who consider it an event of conflict.
That was the picture decades ago – and little has changed. This is the story of that controversial event, from its inception out of the 1950s London race riots to its present-day controversies, where it’s still perceived as a Carnival of violence.
Focusing on its arts and the darker past from which Notting Hill Carnival emerged, Arts of Conflict seeks to open up a conversation about Carnival’s significance and its origins.
