Mix-d:  Walsall. Youth Conference.

Mix-d:  Walsall. Youth Conference.

We had our first conference in Walsall on 1st July 2009.

This was a new collabration between Walsall Children’s Services and Multiple Heritage Project. A look at mixed-race identity. The conference invited 50 mixed-race students to talk about their lived experience, develop individual school action plans and make recommendations for future policy makers.

Students from the following schools attended the event: Shelfield, Barr Beacon, Willenhall, Aldridge and St Thomas More.


Now that I’m a facilitator I’m quite nervous but excited at the same time. it should be a nice experience.
