Black Gold Arts is a Manchester-based arts organisation working predominantly with working-class people of colour, the LGBTQ+ community and their allies.
We aim to get often overlooked voices, stories and hidden histories seen and heard. We do this through film, dance, song, visual art, theatre or any other artist’s medium.
We want our work to excite, educate and entertain, with lots of sass and sprinkles of fun.
For 2018 BGA gets personal, educational and outright sexy. The theme for this year’s festival is The Fierce Four.
The Fierce Four will be four fabulous events over four months from September – December. In conventional and unconventional settings, you can experience exceptional film, dance, spoken word, music, theatre — we are serving it all!
These events would not be possible without the support from:
Whitworth Art Gallery, Z – Arts, Sustained Theatre Up North, Contact Theatre, Rainbow Noir, Tribeca and Arts Council England, as well as our exceptionally talented performers who are bringing the fire for this year’s festival.
