The Cargo Project by Pervasive Media Studio
In celebration of Black History Month and ahead of a UK wide tour, the Cargo Project will be launching a new immersive multi-media experience that offers an alternative narrative to the transatlantic slave trade that’s never been see before.
The exhibition will profile the lives of many individuals from the African Diaspora, Nanny of The Maroons Paul Bogle and Mary Seacole and many more, all people who worked within unimaginable confines but continued to inspire and empower others through their actions. The chains were ever present but the refusal to be shackled is a thread that runs throughout the exhibition. The desire and ability of these figureheads to work with the severe restrictions that surrounded them and not just survive but go on to change the course of history, is a theme at the heart of Cargo.
Incorporating exclusive new music from Massive Attack, Cargo fuses the poetry of Lawrence Hoo, moving image and digital technology in this extraordinary collaboration between artists from across the globe.
