A celebration of diversity in the East Riding community, past and present
This project aims to celebrate the lived experiences, past and present, of the settlement and resettlement of traveller and ethnic minority communities across the East Riding.
The history and formation of East Riding has always involved travellers and settlers, people who have migrated, passed through or settled and raised families of future generations and who have helped shape our heritage and culture. This is still true today and the East Riding of Yorkshire Council wants to understand and to share these experiences and to celebrate the rich diversity within our community.
Your Council...where everyone matters
There are several ways to be involved in the project detailed on this webpage, and if you would like to find out more please email email@example.com
Stories are powerful, they can make us cry or laugh, feel fear or elation. They can inform and challenge our perspectives and enrich all of our lives. Stories make a difference and that is why East Riding of Yorkshire Council want to hear from people of ethnic minority identity whose stories are often hidden and not heard and yet have much to tell us about living in the East Riding.
Stories are first of all both personal and unique and can be told in a variety of creative forms in written word, poetry, music or art. The power of stories is that they can then be shared and enable others to make connections with their own personal experiences. Your story told today will help build the archive and historical record for tomorrow.
There are four different themes to help frame your contributions:
Stories and creative contributions (written and audio) can be submitted.
If you are a teacher at an East Riding school and would like your pupils to be involved, please contact us for a discussion: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Archiverse is part of STREAM - the initiative by East Riding Culture and Leisure to make science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and maths more accessible and fun for young people.
