About

Evewright Arts Foundation (EAF) is a not for profit voluntary community organisation. We are passionate to seek out, find and preserve valuable untold stories from marginalised Black communities and present them in informal settings in an innovative and engaging way bringing hard to reach young and older generations together. We value the importance of our community telling their stories in their own voice.

As part of EAF's new development and online strategy Arts Council England (ACE) has awarded our organisation Emergency Response Funding that will help support our sustainability. This will be an exciting phase where we can broaden our reach to new audiences. We are passionate to seek out, find and preserve valuable untold stories from marginalised Black communities. We will present them across multiple online platforms and settings in an innovative and engaging way to reach people from young and older generations in spaces and  settings where they can experience art that is relevant to their lives. We value the importance of our community telling their stories in their own voice.

EAF has been awarded a Windrush Day Grant from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) to contribute to the  Tilbury Walkway of Memories installation. This amazing outdoor site-specific art and sound project aim to educate, celebrate and commemorate the lives of Windrush Pioneers and will be available for the public to share and enjoy.
