Windrush Day 22nd June – Celebrating Migration

 

22nd June 2017, 6.30-8.30pm

Karibu Education Centre, 7 Gresham Rd. Brixton, London SW9 7PH 

The purpose of Windrush Day is to celebrate migration to the UK across the centuries, recognising the significant contribution that migrants have made to Britain over hundreds of years. The need to celebrate migration is critical at this moment in our history, in order to present an alternative “Narrative of our Nation” to the one being put forward by those who are consistently negative about migration. 

22nd June 2017 marks the 69th year of the arrival of the SS Windrush at Tilbury Dock and we will meet to launch the Windrush Day logo, which has been designed by Jon Daniel. We will also hear about a school’s poster campaign being organised by Jon Daniel and it will be an opportunity to hear of grassroots initiatives that will be taking place in the coming year to 22nd June 2018, when we will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Windrush. If you are planning something please come and share your ideas to inspire others and be inspired by the plans of others.

Please let me know if you intend to attend at siva_kumar.t21@btinternet.com

 Kind Regards
