Get trained. Get paid. Get noticed
Free creative production and heritage skills training opportunity for 18-25 year olds from London.
Your chance to see your creative ideas come to life at one of London’s most important arts venues – the Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
Come and explore the history of race politics in the UK from the 1980’s until the present day and re-imagine ways to move forward in today’s challenging political landscape.
Design innovative events, creative products or campaigns that explore:
What it means to be an activist/change agent today?
How to respond to contemporary discrimination based on gender, race, and background?
With nationalism on the rise, globally, how can we respond to current threats to identity in London?
What is the history of race politics in this country?
In this project we explore the life and work of Bernie Grant, one of the UK’s first Black MP’s and the first ever Black leader of a council. What was it like to be Black and fighting for change in the early 80’s in London? What are the differences between then and now? How can we be inspired by past successes for marginalised groups in 2018?
Join us on Tuesday 5th March 2019 from 6pm to 9pm or Wednesday 6th March 2019 from 6pm to 9pm at The Bernie Grant Arts Centre to find out more.
