Time: 12.00 - 13.30
Location: Futures Gallery, Pierhead
Description: As part of the celebrations to mark Black History Month the National Assembly for Wales is proud to host an exhibition delivered by Dr Roiyah Saltus of the University of South Wales. Be/Longing centres on the Commonwealth citizens who travelled to Wales after the Second World War to join others from the Caribbean islands who had made Wales their home long before. The installations and photographs are rooted in the lives of this older generation and aim to provide a glimpse into some of the everyday practices of people with roots as deeply embedded in Welsh soil as in the sand of the islands where they were born.
Open to the public: Attendance at the event is by invitation only however the Senedd and the Pierhead will remain accessible to the public during our normal opening hours.
