Don’t miss our upcoming event

Thursday 25th October from 10:30 – 15:30

The Shop on Greame Street, Moss Side, Manchester. Spring 1972

Though funding has increased for BAME heritage projects, their visibility in the UK’s museums and archives has not. The aim of this event is to highlight the need for increased visibility of Black, Asian and minority ethnic heritage in museums and archives. This free event will explore the value of preserving memories for future generations and help you to develop some of the basic skills required.

We particularly welcome communities and organisations working to record BAME heritage. The morning will consist of talks from our guest speakers and the afternoon will consist of practical workshops for working with archive material.
