An Audience with the Mandela Family at the Everyman

Nelson Mandela International Day, on Tue 18 Jul, shines a light on the legacy of a man who changed the 20th century and helped to shape the 21st. The day is used as a moment to renew the values that inspired Nelson Mandela, and to examine how his values should inspire us to take action and make a change. 

They are proud to present, in partnership with Mandela8 and Liverpool BID Company, An audience with the Mandela Family. A public event and panel discussion hosted by Marcus Ryder MBE and featuring Nelson Mandela’s daughter and granddaughter, Dr Maki Mandela & Tukwini Mandela.


Mandela8 is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Its initial vision is to see a permanent artwork that functions as an unique performance, conversation and contemplation space established at a Toxteth Liverpool 8 heritage site, to celebrate, commemorate and pursue the legacy of Nelson Mandela’s outstanding achievement for humanity.

The project will help to conserve and widely share existing historical and contemporary heritage, support community development and cohesion, and produce a series of creative commissions and collaborations, with widespread community and educational engagement and participation.

This work will be located on an exceptional site of Heritage significance, a man-made island in the ornamental lake in Grade 2 listed Princes Park (Joseph Paxton, Architect). In the unique setting a great artwork will contribute valuably to the experience of this place for the communities of Liverpool, many of whom have been involved in the development of the ideas and designs, whilst also becoming a significant and renowned landmark for the City.

Nelson Mandela’s importance to Liverpool is well documented, and in Toxteth, the area known as Liverpool 8, Mandela was, and remains, a highly significant role model.
