Reclaiming Community Heritage, made possible with the National Lottery Heritage Fund, is led by a partnership of community organisations, including 81 Acts of Exuberant Defiance, The Ubele Initiative, and Empathy Museum, the project marks 40 years since the ’81 Uprisings, when, against a backdrop of racism, recession and unemployment, communities rose up in confrontation with police in Brixton (in April 1981), and (in July 1981) on frontlines across the UK, including Handsworth, Toxteth, Moss Side, Chapeltown, and St Pauls. Through creative “Acts”, Reclaiming Community Heritage channels the frustrations, exuberance, and resourcefulness of Black communities, to reclaim this neglected, forgotten, and under-appreciated heritage.
We are looking for a Black Community-Led Forum Facilitator and 7 Black Community-Led Forum Members.
Deadline: Monday 4th April 2022
The Facilitator will work with The Ubele Initiative to deliver the Initial Training Programme to the new Members, to provide the ongoing facilitation, and to be the primary point of contact regarding the safe-guarding of the members of the Forum and of the people with whom the Forum come into contact.
Deadline: Thursday 14th April 2022
The role of the Members is, jointly, to support the Project Director and partners in planning and delivering Reclaiming Community Heritage. Such support may include raising public awareness and understanding, catalysing inter-generational conversations, and embedding heritage and legacy into the physical fabric of frontlines.
Our vacancies are open to applicants from all backgrounds.
