SPECIAL EVENT: Explore the themes captured by photographers who have recorded the black experience.

A day and night event, open to all, to discover how photography has recorded the transformation of music, the wave of subcultures and the shifting disposition of a nation. Chill out with DJs in the garden, bring your photographs to our preservation experts, share your photo story with an oral historian, attend an image-making masterclass and show off your results in our pop-up display.

Jointly organised with the London International Ska Festival and Tighten Up Crew

Staying power is a partnership project between the V&A and the Black Cultural Archive (BCA) funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund under the Collecting Cultures Initiative
