This project was funded on 18 Apr 2017!

Voices Of Colour ( VOC ) were recently at a residential weekend with fellow black and brown activists / groups talking about the work we are doing across the UK - mainly within London and the South. We realised that our work often overlaps and we could organise ourselves to work together to fully utilise our individual specialities. We quickly realised that the residential weekend was the only opportunity we have had to sit down together and plan. Our discussions led to how a shared space would be great for us to meet / work together and organise regular collaborative events and workshops for the community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Hold workshops and events on high profile issues around race

Why it's a great idea:

There is a strong need to challenge racism and discrimination and we believe through talking and learning we can tackle racial issues. We will be working collaboratively to provide people with a safe space to have discussions often seen as taboo or too sensitive. People will benefit from the array of knowledge each group brings through our innovative workshop / event styles.

Steps to get it done:

  • Securing coworking and workshop space
  • Organise and hold our first collective workshop or event in the space
