Community Cohesion Project Team

Introduction

I was glad to be invited by Bobby Syed to organise a concert promoting cultural diversity as part of his 2015 anti-racism campaign. His anti-racism credentials go back a long way, as you can see from this short video:

With only a few weeks to go before the UN day against racism it is not possible to organise the kind of high-profile depicted above but we are confident that we can create a night to remember. It will act as the springboard for a more projects in the future.
