Starting Conversations

In August 2014 Cultural Threads were pleased to receive funding from the Big Lottery Fund for our project – Starting Conversations.

We have created an online resource for people from different cultures living in Cornwall – with information about:

    • OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhats On in Cornwall – groups and events
    • Learning – resources, workshops, black history month
    • Information – where to eat and shop, reports, networks
    • Services in Cornwall for BAME communities

There is also a Community Forum for everyone to add news, information, events, stories, comments etc  and to make contact with other people and groups.

We have worked  with culturally diverse communities to develop this resource and will continue to do so.

The website will also be a resource for schools, organisations, families and anyone wanting to find out more.

We hope that this website will become more than just a website, and that everyone will get involved in adding news, information and events.

We have also made a film about celebrating Black History Month in Penzance, Cornwall  – a rural, predominately white area.
