Love & Etiquette presents Black Cube, a new pop up gallery being opened in Blackburn town centre will showcase artists from across the North, UK and abroad.

Black Cube Pop-up Gallery is being run by arts organisation The Love and Etiquette Foundation and will feature a host of workshops, artist demonstrations, exhibitions and film showings all aimed at encouraging cross cultural conversations.

Black Cube will also work to challenge opinions and create discussion and includes the showing of award winning documentaries and films that consider perceptions around ethnic communities.
