We made history. The First National Mixed-Race Conference in the Uk.
This was a landmark event for The Multiple Heritage Project. The UK’s 1st National Mixed-Race Conference.
Over 100 mixed-race students from across the country joined us along with members of their school management teams, teachers and mentors.
We worked in partnership with Heritage Lottery Fund, Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Educaton Trust, Walsall Children’s Services, Trafford Council, Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottingham City Children’s Services and Manchester City Council.
Our aim was to do something which had not been done before and create a rare opportunity for young mixed-race people to talk about the things they do not often get an opportunity to talk about.
In the process we leant a lot, shared a lot and produced the Uk’s first ever Mix-d: manifesto created entirely by the young people. (http://www.mix-d.org/files/resources/MHP_Mix-d__Manifesto.pdf)
Feed back from the conference has been very positive, some students have kept the discussion alive by creating their own Mix-d: project within school.
