The George Padmore Institute is an archive, educational resource and research centre housing materials relating to the black community of Caribbean, African and Asian descent in Britain and continental Europe.

Founded in 1991, we are based in North London where we often hold educational and cultural activities including talks and readings. We also publish relevant materials and are making our archives accessible to the general public.

GPI wins award and £10k from Nisa

We are celebrating the win of a £10,000 grant from the Nisa chain of grocery stores under its registered charity Making a Difference Locally (MADL). Sharmilla Beezmohun, one of the GPI's trustees, is the one we thank for this slice of success as she fortuitously noticed the call for applications from local charity/community bodies. MADL marked its 10th anniversary by donating £10,000 each to 10 organizations and Sharmilla completed a winning application on our behalf!
