Get involved this Windrush Day and beyond

There are lots of ways you can get involved with us, support our work, and celebrate Black history, heritage and culture this Windrush Day and all year round.

For example, why not donate or lend an object, memorabilia or information related to the Caribbean experience to our extensive archive collection, or share your story?

As well as helping to preserve Caribbean history for future generations, your objects and stories will help us create exciting, community-led exhibition-events. There are at least 77 different Caribbean islands and we’re here to reflect the stories of all Caribbean generations – including those in Caribbean blended and mixed heritage families.

Or perhaps you’d like to volunteer with us? We’re always looking for people to support our projects.

We’ve also launched a new fundraiser if you’d like to donate. All the funds we raise will go to support our work as a Black, female-led museum and help to celebrate the Caribbean contribution to life in the UK. As an independent heritage organisation run by a mother-daughter team, we’re currently self-funded and sometimes receive small grants or partner funding for individual projects. With your support we can expand our work to champion community-led Black culture throughout the UK and beyond.

Partner with us

We work with a whole range of partners to make sure the Caribbean contribution to life in Britain is understood, shared, celebrated and honoured. From local grassroots organisations and universities to national institutions like the V&A, National Trust, Bank of England Museum, Museum of London Docklands, Whitworth Art Gallery, Pitt Rivers Museum, Manchester Museum, Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery, York Castle Museum, Parliamentary Archives and the British Library.

Check out the Exhibitions page to find out more about our major exhibition-events and collaborations. As you’ll see, we’ve created all kinds of unique projects – from books, films and a podcast series, to events and exhibitions – including an edible exhibition!

Collaborating with us enables our partners to reflect on their own collections, programmes and practices and think differently about British history, heritage and culture – including how it can be interpreted, experienced and shared to tell the Caribbean story and become more inclusive and representative of all communities.
