About this event
The Ahmed Iqbal Ullah (AIU) RACE (Race, Archives and Community Engagement) Centre is a specialist library and archive focusing on the experiences and stories of Black, Asian, global majority, refugee and migrant communities.
In 50 years' time or more, if anyone asks, "What was life like during the Covid-19 pandemic for Black, Asian, migrant and refugee communities in Greater Manchester?" we want to be able to answer.
Since last year, the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Race Centre has been running a Covid-19 collecting project to make sure these stories aren't lost. As part of this work, we are running Collecting During Covid, a series of events examining Covid-19 in Greater Manchester from marginalised perspectives. Our theme for this event is borders and migration.
Our guest speakers are:
• Fereshteh Mozaffari from Sheba Arts, a women-led community arts organisation based in Manchester working alongside migrants and refugees. We will also be showing some of the work Sheba Arts has produced during the pandemic.
• Sanaz Raji from Unis Resist Border Controls, a national campaign supporting non-EU international university students and workers.
• TBC from Europia, an organisation supporting Eastern European nationals in Manchester since 2008.
Find out about their experiences supporting communities through a hostile environment, ongoing austerity and a global pandemic.
This event is open to all and will be live-captioned.
The AIU Race Centre Covid-19 collecting project is funded by Resourcing Racial Justice.
