Artists get to impress professionals
Artists were given the chance to showcase their work to top industry professionals as part of a project celebrating cultural diversity and Black History Month.
Dancers, poets, installation artists and actors performed at Curve, in Leicester.
The Black History Live event was organised by not-for-profit arts company Serendipity, based in Phoenix Square, and supported by Leicester City Council and the Arts Council for England.
It was arranged to coincide with Black History Month in the United States, which is held in February, as opposed to October in the UK.

Each of the artists was given a bursary from Serendipity to help prepare for their slots at Curve, where they were looking to get commissions for some of their work.
Pawlet Brookes, artistic director for Serendipity, said: "It was a platform for the artists and something not taking place anywhere else in the country.
"Leicester is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United Kingdom and so it is the perfect place to encourage new work based on issues relating to identity, diversity and gender.
"We are pleased to be developing the talent and careers of our artists and are committed to working to ensure emerging talent gets the opportunity to flourish."
