It is an exciting time for us as we seek to develop projects that will aim to address the under-representation of black women and girls in the arts and the lack of opportunities for them to engage in creative practices. The projects will serve as a vehicle to address wellbeing, good mental health, inequality and under-representation
We respond to issues affecting this community which have become more prevalent since the outbreak of the covid-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement. This includes the lack of sustained confidence building, the lack of opportunity for them to have a strong voice; their life choices being determined by those outside of their lived experience; the prevalence of mental health challenges and historical racial trauma which has been exacerbated by the pandemic.
We need our work to be sustainable and legacy building in order to meet the challenges black women and girls face. The Fundraising & Development Officer will work with us to establish such sustainability and avoid short term fixes which do not result in systemic change, or create legacy.
SUMMARY OF WORK
Working with BWLLTC to secure funding for new projects, engaging women and girls, in schools and prisons; to undertake research and produce a fundraising strategy; build relationships with corporate and public sectors, seek sponsorships and partnerships; and complete funding applications.
