Re:Collections – Anti Racist Museums Wales  

Launch of a new project. 

The Welsh devolved government are taking an active approach to anti-racism, as set out in their  Anti Racist Wales Action Plan (ARWAP). As part of this, they have commissioned AIM (the Association of independent Museums) to work with museums in Wales to help them to deliver the Culture, Heritage and Sport goals and actions in the plan, 

Re:Collections – Anti Racist Museums Wales will provide museums with bespoke consultancy, mentoring, workshops, grants and the chance to share experiences and learning. It builds on AIM’s experience in supporting museums to address social inequalities through its Tackling Inequalities grants and in developing and undertaking co-creation projects with under-represented audiences through its New Stories New Audiences funding.  

We at the Ahmed Iqbal Ullah Education Trust are delighted to be supporting AIM in developing and delivering this programme of support and grants to museums. We will be acting as strategic advisor on the programme, bringing our expertise in building anti-racist heritage organisations and working ethically with collections and communities.  Our recent research report on anti-racism and EDI (Equity, Diversity and inclusion) in the heritage sector ‘If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes’ (September 2022) will be a key resource in the development and delivery of the project.
