Black Heritage London

A Project for Young Producers


Black Heritage London is the Numbi Arts x Museum of London’s brand new programme for budding creative producers.  In collaboration with the Museum of London, we will be working with Londoners aged between 18-24 years old to reveal and explore the hidden histories of Black communities in London, leading to a final creative project – to be decided by the participants.

During a four week period over November/December 2021, we have invited young people to take part in a series of sessions where they began to explore their understanding of Black heritage and identity, and heard from Black voices in the sector. Young people visited both our museum sites and took part in a Placemaking walk around Poplar, participated in workshops exploring archiving through film and text with filmmaker Imruh Bakari, and visited the museum’s London, Sugar and Slavery gallery.

We are excited to announce that we will now have four Young Producers working with us from January – May 2022. Sign up for our newsletter to see all they get up to!

Black Heritage London is a Numbi Project for Young Producers in partnership with the Museum of London, and supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Numbi Arts is funded by Tower Hamlets Youth Services and Arts Council England and we continue to be here for culture.
