Race Through The Generations Documentary

Since late 2013 BSWN, with funding through the Heritage Lottery Fund, has set about to understand what the term/idea/concept of race means to Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities.  The end result has been the creation of a number of digital stories by young people from these communities in Bristol and Gloucester.  But we did not just stop there.  We also wanted to document the journey the project itself has taken with these young people – what did they get out of this experience and did it help them understand the inter-generational and changing nature of what race means within BME communities?

Find out for yourself that answer by viewing our “Race Through the Generations” Documentary.

To strengthen the BVCS in the region by increasing its influence in policy arenas, developing the capacity of the BVCS, providing support, and facilitating skills and knowledge sharing across the sector. The work we do involves a strategic action and delivery-based approach to overcoming discrimination, exclusion, and under representation among the BME, and other marginal communities, in the South West. Moreover, our approach also aims to empower these communities by tackling socio-economic deprivation by working in partnership with other agencies and organisations. As a whole, BSWN is a one-stop-shop for capacity building and community empowerment where with our members we work to create a better informed, skilled and represented third sector
