Jon Daniel was one of the most prominent black creatives of his generation – a creative director, designer, social activist, collector, curator and artist.
He was a passionate advocate of creativity as a catalyst for cohesion and empowerment of the black diaspora and their descendants.He passed away in 2017.
He worked on campaigns and branding for Black History Month and Operation Black Vote; he collaborated with Ms Dynamite, Soul II Soul and the Black Cultural Archives; and he championed previous creative trailblazers in Four Corners, his regular column for Design Week.
His show titled Post-Colonial: Stamps from the African Diaspora was hosted at the London store of Stanley Gibbons, the global stamp emporium, in 2011.
His Afro Supa Hero characters delighted children and adults alike at the National Museum of Childhood and his work for the Liverpool Museum of Slavery helped to shape one of the UK’s most significant permanent exhibitions.
The event programmes curated by Lorayne Crawford will include; an exhibition of Jon’s work, a public talk given by Kunle Olulode, a panel discussion exploring Jon Daniel’s legacy mentoring young creatives into creative and cultural industries, a photography workshop by Alexis Chabala, and a drawing and design workshop for Lambeth school children.
