A film screening at Contact for Women of Colour and Non-Binary People of Colour.

Come to our brand new building to experience a 40-minute film by Mele Broomes. Wrapped Up In This is a fictional representation of a caregiver, made from listening and reflecting on the truth of Black womxn. The narration of vocal melodies, dance and spoken word embodies a lingering question that haunts her. She asks herself: is this the way you want me to be?

Wrapped Up in This pays homage to the women from the Caribbean and West Africa who uprooted themselves to the UK in the 1950s and 60s, to save the NHS, whilst holding caring roles in their own homes, and across the nations’ communities.

This in-person event is free to attend. To book please call our Box Office on 0161 274 0600 or email – it is not bookable online.
