Strengthening BAME Inclusion in the Arts for Health & Wellbeing – Reimagining Resourcing Roundtable
Reimagining Resourcing: Piecing together a new funding system for BME-led projects and organisations
This event is aimed at BME-led projects and organisations making vital interventions in the arts, health and well-being. We will have input from funders seeking to better support this cohort and researchers with knowledge about funding who can reflect on recent changes.
Together participants will seek to understand changes in funding practice in the last year and experiences of engaging with funders. How can positive changes be built upon and extended? How might they be the basis for a new funding system?
This workshop recognises the work still required to properly fund BME-led projects and organisations and racial equity more generally. It also tries to mark out a pathway towards serious investment in life-affirming racial justice.
This roundtable on inclusive practice and funding will be chaired by Dr Sanjiv Lingayah. Sanjiv is a researcher, writer and consultant behind Reframing Race (Voice4Change England and Runnymede Trust); It Takes a System (with Race on the Agenda) and is lead author of Home Truths – on the charity sector and racism (Voice4Change England and ACEVO).
This project was initiated as a result of conversations between Flourishing Lives, Race Equality Foundation and HEAR Equality and Human Rights Network. With the aim of bringing together arts and wellbeing professionals from across the Flourishing Lives coalition and representatives from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic voluntary and community groups for open and exploratory conversations.
