Our Mel

Rooted in Yorkshire and based in Sheffield, Sheffield Melanin Fest aka Our Mel is a grassroots volunteer community dedicated to exploring cultural identity, Black history and what it means to be a person of colour in Britain today.

Inspired by two local lasses on a journey of self-love, Sheffield Melanin Fest was born in November 2016 over a pack of caramel biscuits and a cup of tea, Yorkshire of course.

Sheffield Melanin Fest’s mission is to support, encourage, teach and build the Sheffield community through music, film, arts and education. We aim to create a safe space for all age groups and ethnicities where exploring culture is encouraged, talent is showcased and an embracement of heritage is welcomed.

We recognise that Black History is a history interconnected and so is not limited to a month or a time but has its roots interwoven within stories of pain, struggle, strength and beauty.

Sheffield Melanin Fest creates a space to showcase talent, discover what it means to be Black and British, explore a rich and vibrant culture and be proud of a deep and vast heritage.
