Same Storm, Different Boats is underway

Jan 5, 2021

Same Storm, Different Boats is a multi-partner collaborative project providing educational and community support to black, brown, minoritised and new Cumbrians.

The project is designed to bring the seven partner organisations together to use their expertise and experience in arts, education, youth-work, culture, advocacy and campaigning to support expressions of identity and belonging, and to create welcoming and resilient communities.

As well as CDEC, the partners include Anti Racist Cumbria, AWAZ Cumbria, Carlisle One World Centre, Furness Multicultural Community Forum, M-Unit, and Multicultural Cumbria.

Building working relationships to support our communities

Our intention is, with thanks to funding from the National Lottery Community Fund and the Government, to build on the alliances and working relationships we already have and create some new ones. This will allow us to become greater than the sum of our individual parts so that we can better support black, brown and minoritised Cumbrians; migrants and refugees both now and for the future.

We are identifying need and creating an evidence base, and running pilot projects, so that we can continue to support and strengthen all of our Cumbrian communities now and for the future! There has never been a better time to celebrate all the ways in which we are connected!
