Runnymede Trust in partnership with National Lottery Community Fund have organised a 2-day online conference called Shared Futures.
The conference features a full and varied programme of seminars, panel discussions and speeches on the funding infrastructure for BME-led projects and organisations. It seeks to articulate the value of Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) led civil society, engaging with funders and grant-makers of all types and sizes.
Access either the livestream event on 14th & 15th April or the recorded sessions up to a month after conference completion.
- The path to sustainability for BME-led organisations: what it really takes.
- The case for community ownership: examining asset-led development.
- Powering Research: university-community partnerships and how they work.
- Speed networking: meeting peers and making friends, breaking the isolation of BME-led work
If you are working on a current funding application, National Lottery Community Fund will be offering informal, confidential feedback sessions with their grant-makers.
