Africa UK Collaborations

The Museum of British Colonialism was started in 2018 by a small group of women in the UK and Kenya, all interested in going on a journey together to better understand our shared history. The project is – at heart – a project about international collaboration; about talking, learning, creating, displaying and sharing work together so that we can forge better collective understanding of our past and prevent exploitative dynamics in our future.

Due to the centrality of Africa UK collaborations in our work, we included a panel on this topic in our January 2020 Changing the Narrative event at The Africa Centre. The panel was an opportunity to explore the different methodologies and challenges to collaborations between the UK and Africa, in the areas of diplomacy, arts and culture and movements for social justice.

On the panel were: Nadine Patel – Head of UK Partnerships & Programmes for sub Saharan Africa Arts Group at the British Council; Julius Mbaluto – Founding Editor of Informer East Africa Newspaper; Chao Tayiana – Founder African Digital Heritage, Co-founder of Museum of British Colonialısm; Olivia Windham Stewart Co-Founder Museum of British Colonialism; Dr Pauline Long – Entrepreneur and Philanthropist; Sheila Ruiz, Deputy Director, Royal African Society.

The panel was recorded by News of the South, a news provider operating in Zimbabwe and the UK nd is available to watch on their YouTube channel (click above!).
