A time for New Dreams takes its name from a book by Ben Okri, a collection of essays on how the world is and how it could be. The work is an experimental and intergenerational manifestation of the dreams of the Windrush generation in Wales. Filmed in Newport, and based on archival material and new testimonials, it reflects on the ambitions the Windrush generation held as Invited Citizens, as well as the racism they endured upon arrival. Moving through time, the film demonstrates how the recent Windrush Scandal has resulted in these dreams being turned into waking nightmares. So, right now this is a time for new dreams.

Times are approximate - a full running order will be shared with ticketholders a few days prior to the event.
