The Black Community Forum is a strand of the Made With Many programme, facilitated by Support Northamptonshire that exists to:
- Develop an arts, culture and heritage programme for Black Communities and support its effective delivery and outcomes.
- Scrutinise the Made With Many programme to ensure that it is effectively delivering its Race Equality Objectives and to influence the Race Equality and wider Equality Plans.
The Black Community Forum has recently carried out a collective visioning exercise to determine opportunities for short, medium and long-term goals. These include opportunities to pilot cultural activities in the next year, including key celebrations, the potential for a pop-up exhibition space and a Multicultural Festival in 2024.
The Black Community Forum are currently inviting Black organisations and individual Black creatives to collaborate and commit to contributing to the research, creation and delivery of important projects in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Find out more and apply by 12pm on Monday 30th January 2023
To find out more about joining the forum please contact Myrle Roach, Wellingborough Community Engagement Co-ordinator at email@example.com or 07936 958997.
