About

London‘s Notting Hill Carnival, whether defined as an event, festival, street party or art form, has three key modalities: a ritual of resistance, a festival of otherness and performance art.

This lecture by Ansel Wong will look at the history of the event and examine the challenges facing all its constituencies – artists, performers, regulatory authorities, residents, service providers and the London Notting Hill Carnival Enterprises Trust – in their struggle to remain involved.

Ansel Wong is one of the Founders of Elimu Carnival Band and a former Director of the Flamboyan Community Association. He has served on The Notting Hill Carnival Trust and is currently a Director of the Carnival Village Trust, Cultural Co-operation and the Commonwealth Arts and Cultural Foundation. He is a Fellow of the RSA.
