As part of Black History Month 2015, and through our ten year plan You’re Welcome, Barnwood Trust is encouraging people to come together to create their own community ‘Kanga’.
You’re Welcome is all about helping people to create more welcoming and inclusive communities, so to take part in the competition you will need to demonstrate that:
How to enter?
Your community Kanga must be at least 50cm x 50cm but no bigger than 100cm x 100cm. It must be decorated and created by a group of four or more people, including at least one person with a disability or mental health challenge.
Once you have created your Kanga you can:
and make sure you include:
If your group would like some financial support to help you create your Kanga (materials, paints etc) you can apply for a Small Sparks Grant. You can apply for a grant of up to £250 if you can show us that:
Please note that Small Sparks Grants are considered monthly and so the last point at which you can apply for a Small Spark to help you with your Kanga is Friday 14th August 2015. For more information on how to apply for a Small Sparks Grant visit http://www.yourewelcome.to/grants
The competition is open from Monday 15th June. The deadline for sending in your Kanga is
Monday 14th September.
What happens to my Kanga?
Once all of the Kangas have been collected in they will be taken around the county as a travelling exhibition at various Black History Month events. Please see the Black History Month 2015 programme to find out where you can see them.
The winning Kanga
The winners of the Kanga competition (judged at the end of October) will receive an African meal cooked in their community for up to 20 people, to be arranged at a date convenient to the cooks and your community but within 12 months of winning.
