As a next step in our journey, BARC would like to fund student-led decolonising activities and anti-racist practice in higher education. Some examples might include: scholarly or creative/artistic events, establishing networks, hosting teach-ins, seminars and webinars. We are also happy to fund practical support for ongoing projects, e.g. costs of materials and supplies (digital or analogue), venue rental, production, publishing and printing.
Applications must be submitted by 15:30 on Saturday 26th October by email or in person at the Organising for Liberation event at QMUL. Please come to see us at 17:30 at the close of the day to find out if your proposal has been awarded funding. If you are not able to attend or stay till the end of the event, we will contact you with the contact info you provide.
Proposals will be considered according to the following principles:
- Does the activity centre the voices and interests of students of colour?
- Does the activity help to expand, strengthen, or build upon existing efforts, networks, connections and communities?
- Is the activity feasible within the proposed budget?
N.B. Maximum allocation is £300. We have a limited pot of funding to distribute, so cost-effectiveness will allow us to fund more proposals!
