HOMEWARD

adverb

Towards home

HOMEWARD is an academy devised by Lyrici Arts for Medway and Kent based Black heritage artists. Through a programme of yearly events participants will explore how the word ‘homeward’ connects with themes of personal identity, lived experience, culture and heritage.

Project Details

HOMEWARD is an academy designed to give Black heritage artists the space to create and develop their practice through a programme of industry mentorship, training and profiling.

Work will be explored through live and digital platforms, with participants provided access to explore themes relating to personal identity, lived experience and culture, and to further their artistic careers.

 

HOMEWARD was launched in 2022 as a Creative Estuary Co-commission. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport funds the Cultural Development Fund which is administered by Arts Council England.

Creative Estuary Co-commissions support a wide range of cultural projects with new commissions for Estuary-based producers and artists, from activity for emerging cultural activists to large scale commissions with a diverse mix of partners. The Co-commissions will raise widespread awareness of existing creative talent across the region and support creative practitioners and organisations to make and present new work.
