Sarah Parker Remond Centre


Black Atlantic Innovation Network

The past decade has seen active engagement by cultural institutions in England with efforts to strengthen equality, diversity and inclusion and processes of ecological sustainability and decolonisation within organisations. Funded by UCL Innovation & Enterprise and co-chaired by Professor Paul Gilroy and Ashish Ghadiali, the Black Atlantic Innovation Network will see UCL’s Sarah Parker Remond Centre provide strategic support to leading arts, heritage and education organisations in taking stock of work already undertaken in these areas, exploring objectives, challenges and best practices and facilitating the emergence of collaborative future strategies within and across sectors.

Founding partners include Serpentine Galleries, the National Trust and the National Education Union and working groups will be co-led by Lucia Pietroiusti (Arts), Professor Rodney Harrison (Heritage) and Professor Tariq Jazeel (Education).

For further information, please contact Ashish Ghadiali, Co-Chair of the Black Atlantic Innovation Network - a.ghadiali@ucl.ac.uk.
