Cardiff: Du a Balch
Historically Cardiff’s Black Community was based in what was known as ”Tiger Bay". This area was built up by
immigrant communities due to it’s proximity to Cardiff’s Docks that exported vast amounts of steel and coal.
This enormous opportunity for work attracted people from across the globe, creating “Tiger Bay”.
This community has spread out across Cardiff but still reside in areas that blatantly display an abundance of
multi-ethnic cultures. This video observes these areas, presenting these cultures within their westernized
contexts to the lens.
The voice of Bianca Ali accompanies the piece. Bianca is a community speaker and the face of Black Lives
Matter Cardiff and the Vale. She speaks about her community through the art of spoken word.
The video was preformed alongside a spoken word piece by Bianca Ali at the Harddwch Launch Party.
