Renaissance One – A Great Day
A Great Day was a collaboration between decibel, renaissanceone and The British Library.
A Great Day is a photograph: a celebration of the contemporary British canon through a gathering of its brightest stars – a focus on African, Caribbean and Asian achievement in Britain over three generations – a bringing together of a myriad of perspectives and artistic sensibilities (including poetry, prose, playwrighting, live art, publishing and cultural activism) through the unifying genre of literature.
The focus of the day was to bring together key exponents of contemporary British literature scene who are of African, Caribbean, and Asian origin, as a way to tribute and mark the impact of diverse communities on Britain. A Great Day is not a definitive list, rather a snapshot in time and a celebratory gathering.
