COVID-19 - The African Caribbean Cultural Centre is Not Operating As Normal

The recently renamed African Caribbean Cultural Centre has ceased all normal operations and has been closed since the lockdown. We are regularly reviewing the situation subject to government advice. If you need a space for activities that fall within government guidelines then we are happy to consider your request. You can keep up to date with the latest news here on our website or you can subscribe to our email updates below or follow us on social media @aclc_2020.

Our Coronavirus Response

In these challenging times our focus will be on humanitarian emergency relief activities as well as more strategic developments. There are some phenomenal grass roots organisations that have sprung up. We are committed to supporting their efforts and will make the African Caribbean Cultural Centre available for relief use.

The Covid-19 pandemic is taking a huge and disproportionate toll on our community (emotionally, physically, psychologically and financially). Many are finding it difficult to cope with the loss of so many close friends and family members both here and abroad. There is an urgent need for wide ranging support to be provided in a culturally relevant way. We are in the process of creating offers of support and welcome volunteers who can contribute their time or expertise to get this up and running quickly.

We are committed to building a hardship fund that will provide additional support as needs are identified from our outreach efforts. It is early days in developing this but we know the needs are great and increasing as redundancies escalate in the workplace, jobs decrease and access to Universal Credit has significant delays. We are especially conscious that college leavers are facing a bleak future.

We are seeking to partner with community organisations that will help us to deliver on our aims and objectives for the African Caribbean community. We can provide the umbrella to build the cohesion and partnership working that will provide a significantly improved joint offer as well as building sustainable capacity to deliver for our community. We are committed to providing the community infrastructure and access to funds that would not otherwise be obtainable. We invite you to work with us now to create the proposal for a Community Infrastructure Organisation for the African Caribbean Community in North London. Let's start talking and building our future.

Projects

UNTOLD Documentary & Exhibition - GOING LIVE SOON!

The stories of our elders is the story of struggle, activism and overcoming to build unity in the midst of adversity. It is now part of the history of the United Kingdom and it is important that we celebrate their achievements and make them known to younger generations as part of their mainstream history curriculum. The National Lottery Heritage Fund has provided the funding for this outstanding project.

Watch the trailer for this exciting documentary coming soon

This project will begin the documenting and sharing of inspiring stories of pioneering members of the Windrush Generation who in 1974, founded the charity the African Caribbean Leadership Company (ACLC).

Their achievements include establishing the renowned West Indian Cultural Centre (WICC) in Turnpike Lane, Haringey; campaigning for civil rights locally and internationally; and influencing race legislation and education policy. Their rich personal journeys are equally fascinating from Caribbean childhoods to present-day London.

We want to capture their stories to celebrate their legacy and produce archive material that can inform, educate and inspire future generations; to give young descendants of this heritage a sense of identity and a greater knowledge of the history of their community.

We want all communities to have a greater understanding of the challenges and accomplishments that define them.

We will be producing and sharing archive material about the inspiring, culturally historic life stories of three ACLC founders who were instrumental in establishing the WICC.
