Exploring an HLF Community Based Archive Project: the George Padmore Institute
This is a joint HLF-GPI event designed to share the GPI's experience with other community groups, especially groups that might be considering applying for HLF funding. The event is by invitation only. We still have some space available on the day, so if you would like to attend, please email us, email@example.com or email Michael Murray at the HLF, firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible . We are especially interested in hearing from community based organisations and those working to expand access to heritage to Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.
