Working in Partnership

We have collaborated with a large number of other organisations to produce a variety of outputs such as exhibitions and online learning resources.  We also continue add to our collection through the donation of oral histories and archive material.  Some previous examples of projects that we have worked on include:

As part of this project we provided a research workshop, and access to our archive collection for an exhibition.  We received in copies of the oral history recordings, videos and the administration papers of the project.

Zimbabwe Association 12 year project  2014

As part of our collaboration we provided oral history guidance, access to learning resource templates to create a learning resource, a venue space for a pop up exhibition and event and also received in the associations papers into the collection.

The other Georgians 2015

As part of this learning project we collaborated with the Brixton Learning Collective Windmill Cluster to deliver school sessions  We explored the range of experiences of people of African descent starting life in Britain – those who were brought here, travelled here, and were born here.  This was delivered whilst the Black Georgians exhibition was open.
