About First Waves
To mark the 50th anniversary of the 1968 Race Relations Act, photographic artist and educator Scarlett Crawford has been commissioned by UK Parliament to work with communities in Liverpool and across the country. At Bluecoat, Scarlett has collaborated with young people from the Greenhouse Project and Liverpool Community Spirit’s Multi-Faith Youth Council to create artworks which explore the impact of race relations legislation on their lives. The resulting exhibition of photographs, a soundscape and film, created in summer workshops at Bluecoat, will also be shown at the Houses of Parliament in 2019, alongside work from the rest of the UK.
