Tickets for Black Girl Festival 2018 have gone on sale today. The festival, which was launched by Paula Akpan and Nicole Crentsil last year, is the first in the UK dedicated to celebrating black women and girls.

Akpan is co-founder of the ‘I’m Tired’ Project and social media coordinator for gal-dem, and Crentsil is the founder of Unmasked Women. The 2018 festival, which is open to all, will be held on the 27th October, and will “focus on facilitating the growth of black women and girls.”

Last year’s festival featured talks, workshops, masterclasses and a marketplace, described by gal-dem contributor Rhianna Ilube as “a space to belong”.
