For the 25th Slavery Remembrance Day commemoration we welcome Saint Lucian artist, filmmaker and historian, Fiona Compton, to Liverpool to deliver the Dorothy Kuya Slavery Remembrance Memorial Lecture.

Fiona explores the complexities of identity, heritage and social injustice. Her work surrounds self-empowerment and challenging representation, which has led her work to be part of several public speaking engagements, both locally and internationally. 

"As keynote speaker for Slavery Remembrance Day in Liverpool, I stand on the shoulders of ancestors whose voices were silenced. We reclaim those voices, weaving them into the tapestry of remembrance and resilience. Let us confront the shadows of history with courage, and illuminate a path forward guided by justice, empathy, and solidarity." Fiona Compton

This event is part of  Slavery Remembrance Day 2024.

Doors open at 5.30pm with the lecture starting promptly 6.30pm. There will be refreshments available on arrival.

Tickets will go on sale on the 1st July.
