Windrush Day Grant – Sheffield City Council

Posted on: 09/08/2021

Sheffield City Council has opened up applications to organisations wishing to submit their expressions of interest in this project that aims to “enhance Windrush Generation memories within Sheffield City Archive’s collection of Black history artefacts and content.”

The Council had been awarded £5,000 by the Windrush Day Grant Fund, which was the money made available to Ignite Imaginations. However, the Council will now match this funding, making a total of £10,000 available for the project.

Sheffield City Council are inviting organisations with connection and reach to Sheffield’s Black, African and Caribbean communities and knowledge of Windrush generation/Black history and archiving practices to apply to deliver a programme of workshops or events which use arts-based engagement to create a Windrush celebration event for the city showcasing the content and output of the workshops.

The funding can support both existing successful projects or new projects or programmes in Sheffield and needs to be delivered by 31 October.

Expressions of interest or questions can be emailed to [email protected].

The deadline for applications is 23 August 2021 at 5pm.
