About the Black Community Forum
The Black Community Forum is a strand of the Made With Many programme 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.
