The Inclusion Agency have been awarded an Annual Fund Grant for their project ‘Where are you really from?’
The Inclusion Agency (TIA) was founded by writer and researcher Louisa Adjoa Parker, and Louise Boston-Mammah, who also works for Development Education in Dorset. The pair have worked together on a number of Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic projects over the years, and through TIA they hope to deliver further diverse arts and heritage projects in the region, as well as supporting organisations to become more inclusive.
Where are you really from? is a pilot project that will build on research carried out by Louisa in 2018-2019, when she produced a podcast and blog during her South West Creative Technology Network fellowship. The new project will gather more stories and share them widely, adding in literary elements such as poetry and fictional audio. The project is supported by publishing partner, Little Toller Books.
