Sampad, in partnership with Birmingham Archives, has been awarded a grant by the National Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a new project which explores Commonwealth Migration to Birmingham through a collection of photographs. The project, From City of Empire to City of Diversity: A Visual Journey, will see the preservation and cataloguing of 10000 photographs from Ernest Dyche’s photography studios, an incredible legacy for those wishing to use such collections for family history, artistic, academic or other research.

To celebrate the Commonwealth Games coming to Birmingham in 2022, the project will also deliver an activity and learning programme to bring the collection to life and help increase engagement with this unique collection. To lead this programme, we are seeking an experienced individual for the role of Learning & Community Engagement Manager, which will include a major 3 month exhibition at the Library of Birmingham, a touring exhibition to schools and community centres, a talks and events programme for community spaces, schools and residential care homes, summer schools and a whole host of other events. The activity and engagement programme will be adapted to be delivered within government restrictions.
