The CITY Institute is pleased to announce its partnership with Black Diasporas. Black Diasporas is a geolocated oral narrative repository that was piloted in NYC and initially executed in Naarm-Melbourne (Australia). The team is working towards producing a similar project with Black people in Tkaronto-Toronto. The Naarm-Melbourne (Australia) was made by 75 Black people from Australia including, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, designers, journalists, doctors, programmers, activists etc. Black Diasporas has interviewed Black people from across African Diasporas in North America, the Caribbean, Europe and the African continent who now call Australia home. Linked here are a couple of stories you might find interesting from the Naarm-Melbourne project about dance, community and belonging, and one from the Manahatta-NYC pilot about childhood memories. The Naarm-Melbourne project was awarded the Victorian State Government Multicultural Excellence award for community innovation and the ArchiTeam innovation and contribution award. The aim of the project is to create space for Black people to tell their own stories, Black Diasporas Tkaronto-Toronto will be made by 100+ Black Canadian community members, creatives, journalists and filmmakers: also providing capacity-building opportunities for Black creatives.
