‘Coming in from the Cold’ will operate across Greater Manchester in two phases one of which has now been completed:

Phase One (Completed) – Feb to Aug 2017: Initial grants from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) allowed us to research BME heritage projects and identify gaps. We conducted an audit of recent activity, locating where outputs had been archived. We also commissioned a survey of BME communities across Greater Manchester, to understand more about their distribution and visibility. We then develop a strategic plan to encourage and support further BME heritage projects over the course of Phase Two.

Phase Two – Jan 2018 to Jan 2021:  After receiving HLF approval of our plan, Phase Two will support targeted BME communities to develop and deliver their heritage projects, providing advice, training and resources. We will also archive collected material and help groups to share their work and findings with others.
