The Unforgotten is a public art installation by artists Sadeysa Greenaway-Bailey and Anna Fleischle, commissioned by the Young Vic to engage with the conversation within #BlackLivesMatter about statues being torn down, asking us all to (re)consider who we celebrate as our heroes.
The Unforgotten is also a year-long online conversation with our community. Each month we will use a specific theme as a way of amplifying Black heroes whose contributions should be remembered and celebrated. From military heroes, to LGBTQ+ trailblazers, to academics, artists and activists, we want this year to help us all to establish a new way of selecting and celebrating our icons and heroes. We believe learning about black history need not be confined to just one month of the year.
