Black Futures Exhibition: Motherland

Sunday 9th - Friday 14th October

Ayesha Jones documents a journey to Africa with her mother in a physical and virtual exhibition as part of our Black Futures programme


Over the course of three years, photographer Ayesha Jones travelled with her mother to Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana and Benin, setting out to deepen their understanding of their ancestors’ culture and history.

During her time there, she captured their journey together through a mixture of analogue and digital photography, now brought together in an exhibition titled Motherland.

Currently on display in the Belgrade Theatre foyer and online as part of our Black Futures programme, Motherland documents Ayesha’s and her mother’s efforts to reconnect with their roots in order to better understand their place in the present and future.

You can view her photos online and read her thoughts on them here, or see the images on display at the Belgrade Theatre until Wed 14 October.
