Mike Prescod MBE Tribute

Cinnamon Art launch a new digital artwork remembering the work of Mike Prescod

Cinnamon Arts are proud to present a large, digital print photo-mosaic of Mike Prescod MBE, created from images and quotes from the whole community, including friends, family and colleagues.

Contributions reflect activity that progressed all equality issues across Wellingborough and further afield: why and how he influenced change that benefited Black communities and other under-represented groups and how he tirelessly challenged injustice at all levels of authority from within County and Borough Councils, Probation Service and the Mental Health Trust.

Accompanying the visual Artwork are soundbites collated from Northamptonshire Rights & Equality Council (NREC) oral recordings from the Race Act 40 project(2018) and In Conversation event 2022.

These are accessible via the digital link and QR code on the artwork and can be listened to below. Mosaic tiles also include text taken directly from Northamptonshire Black History Association’s transcribed interview with Mike, as part of NREC’s 30th anniversary in 2003.

“The 4-foot-tall, lightweight artwork can be exhibited at local events and schools and used as historical representation of local Black contribution. We hope that this triggers discussion and activity that can be further developed with Made With Many.”
