Launch of the West Midlands Cultural Diversity Network

The national Cultural Diversity Network was set up in 1998 following a
discussion at the Group for Education in Museums Conference.

The main aims of the network are:
*       To establish and co-ordinate freely accessible regional cultural
diversity networks
*       To respond to the needs of the museum profession with regards to
advice and training
*       To assist museums in reflecting the contribution of diverse cultures
to society, economy, culture and history of the UK
*       To facilitate contacts between museums and galleries, the local
community and organisations involved in cultural diversity issues
*       To map the development of cultural diversity work in museums and
galleries
*       To disseminate examples of good practice

The Museums and Galleries Commission and now, Resource: the Council for
Museums, Archives and Libraries have supported the Network through a small
grant to each Area Museum Council.  They have also collected case-studies of
good practice and undertaken two small-scale mapping exercises in 1999 and
2001.

We are a dynamic, growing organisation which has successfully developed
community history with people of all ages and backgrounds in this lively
multicultural borough. We are seeking a Director with enthusiasm for working
with a wide range of communities so that those whose histories have not
previously been heard are given a voice.

Established as a charity in 1989, our staff team of five run projects using
oral history and reminiscence in a range of creative ways. Our award-winning
publications enable local residents to contribute their stories to the
history of the area and its multi-cultural communities. Older people
contribute their recollections to the history curriculum in schools and
trained volunteers do one-to-one reminiscence with frail elderly people at
home.

In an exciting development we now are setting up the North Kensington
Community Archive. Money raised from a local appeal and a major award from
the Heritage Lottery Fund will establish the archive and run oral history
projects with the local Caribbean, Spanish, Irish and Moroccan communities.

We are seeking someone who will bring vision, leadership and strategic
financial skills to the organisation. He/she will have a track record in
project development, staff management and fundraising. Imagination and a
strong commitment to developing the skills and interests of volunteers and
users are essential qualities.
