ART:sync Heritage Project

13 October 2014

We are very pleased to announce that we made a successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a year-long project called Crossing The Teas, which was inspired by our dear departed Irene Mensah.   

In brief, ‘tea’ is a metaphor for the infusion of many cultural influences in today's society.  Crossing The Teas will be an Oral History & Photography project exploring different cultural practices around the shared custom of drinking tea.  The project presents unique engagement opportunities for 8 community groups from diverse cultural backgrounds to share and learn about the histories, traditions and stories of their own and other cultures and customs.  Another key strand is a volunteering programme, and there will also be a number of opportunities for participants to learn new skills.
