A call for ideas to digitally celebrate South Asian Heritage Month 

 SAHM launched in 2019 but due to Covid-19, this year SAHM will be delivered online, between 18 July and 17 August 2020. To ensure that young people have a leading role in SAHM 2020, Manchester Museum and the British Council invite proposals to build a youth-led online programme around the following themes*

  • Art

  • Literature/poetry/languages

  • Fashion

  • Food

  • Music

  • Countries

  • Diaspora

  • Dance

  • Other - if there is a particular idea you have that doesn’t fit in the above please do get in touch

This youth-led activity is supported by the DCMS Youth Accelerator Fund via National Lottery Heritage Fund. It is part of Our Shared Cultural Heritage (OSCH), a project that is working to create new ways for museums and youth organisations to work together and become better places for young people. It is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund’s Kick the Dust programme that aims to involve more young people in heritage.

*Themes have been selected by members of the OSCH young person’s collective (please visit the OSCH blog to find out more: https://sharedculturalheritage.wordpress.com/).
