The GPI wraps up October with two outreach outings and hits the ground running again in November

November is here and the GPI is already in the throes of busy times!

A visit from Stroud Green Primary School

On Friday 19 October we welcomed over 20 Year 5 students from Stroud Green Primary School as part of our ongoing outreach work.

Ashmount Primary School students visit the GPI and New Beacon Books

We welcomed school children from the local area into the institute today!

Ashmount Primary School enthusiastically participated in the first of two outreach schools events planned by the GPI and New Beacon Books.

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!  

Everyday Muslim and Archive Initiative

We have been collaborating periodically with the group Everyday Muslim (EM) for over a year as part of their project The Heritage Story of Black British Muslims in London.The project is almost at its end and the GPI is pleased to have been able to assist with training volunteers from EM in archiving, through workshops led by our archivist Sarah Garrod.What is exciting and gratifying for us at the GPI is the group's decision to deposit the completed material here at the institute.

A summer of successful pop up collaborations

The GPI's final pop up collaboration for August took place on Thursday 23 when we joined with One Voice Community in west London for an evening of art, discussion and film around the theme of carnival.
