Critical Histories and Futures is focused on remembering, amplifying and recovering black and brown histories. By interrogating the singular Euro-centric lens through which history is constructed and determined, we are resisting the erasure, trivialisation and homogenisation of black and brown histories. Continuously working from the margins, with nuance, specificity and criticality, we aim to expand our historical foundations and re-imagine futures where we can all thrive.
Our work with schools: we support schools to develop critical approaches to the history curriculum. We provide teacher training, workshops and resources focused on shifting from a Euro-centric lens of history to one that highlights a multiplicity of narratives, amplifies the stories and perspectives of people of colour, and presents a more rigorous understanding where all young people can see themselves in the history they study. Find out more about here.
Community workshops and intimate talks: we facilitate creative workshops focused on bringing together different generations. We reflect on how we learn our histories, explore the role of intergenerational healing in practice, and collectively imagine/dream our futures.
We also host intimate discussions that platform practitioners in the field of history and heritage, to share, influence and develop more critical approaches.
