  • Provide opportunities for informal learning.
  • Inspire, motivate and encourage the participation of Southwark’s diverse communities.
  • Promote social cohesion by sharing histories and cultures.

The theme for 2017 is ‘Celebrating the past and embracing the future’.

The funding will support both small community celebrations as well as larger innovative, exciting events, performances and workshops that take celebrate Black History Month and take place during the month of October 2017 within Southwark Borough.

The deadline for applications is 26 June 2017 (9am).
