BLACK LIVES MATTER
¡VAMOS! embraces the #BLM movement. Racism and its insidious influence has no place in society.
As a multicultural organisation based in North East England we stand alongside our partners, other groups, networks, communities and wider society in this long overdue fight for equality and wholesale change.
This process is ongoing and comes with challenges but we want to be proactive in this transformation. We look forward to playing our part.
For now ¡VAMOS! plans to return in summer 2021 with updates to follow.
At such a difficult time for everyone ¡VAMOS! is postponed until Summer 2021.
Our thoughts and focus go out to the vulnerable at this time – this includes all the freelance, self-employed creatives who help drive projects like ¡VAMOS! forwards. Until then, please stay safe and well.
In 2019 ¡VAMOS! returned for it 13th year in the North East (12-14 July) and Leeds for it’s 5th edition on (21 July) with a programme celebrating Spanish and Portuguese speaking cultures. ¡VAMOS! combined cuisine, art, film, theatre, dance, music, literature, fashion, sport and education, offering an international festival for everyone!
