Mayflower 400 Community Heritage event

CLOUDZ KIDZ CIC

Mayflower 400 Southampton

The 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower from the UK to the New World takes place this year 2020. The Mayflower and her sister ship, The Speedwell, set sail from West Quay on 15 August 1620, carrying 102 passengers. Around 40 of these were the Puritan Separatists who have become known as America’s Founding Fathers. Documents that they created onboard the ship went on to provide the foundations of the American constitution.

This project was funded by a Mayflower 400 community heritage grant as part of the city-wide Mayflower 400 program. The anniversary year seeks to celebrate Southampton, a city and a community, built on journeys and migration, whilst increasing access to and engagement in culture. Other kind funders are Southampton City Council and National Lottery Heritage Fund

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Our project will explore heritage in BAME community around Newtown, St. Mary and Northam area. We would like to encourage the youth of these communities to re-discover and search their rich and valuable heritage. It is well known that most stories of the BAME community from the past are only oral, hidden to most people.

This project will equip young people to engage in a process of uncovering these stories that are vital to understanding their linage, identity and heritage. And to have a perspective as to when, why and how their forefathers came here and how their lives has been since. No doubt, you would like to know the untold stories of your ancestors. The best possible chance to understand how their lives has been surprising beyond expectations.

What ‘𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐭𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐭𝐨𝐧 𝐜𝐢𝐭𝐲 𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐢𝐥’ is saying about the Mayflower 400 events?

– We see the anniversary as an opportunity to work with communities to creatively explore self-identity, migration and transmigration, to celebrate the people of the world, such as the Mayflower passengers, who throughout history have come to, or through, Southampton in search of a new life, helping build our enviable reputation as Gateway to the World.

Your family will be able to benefit from this free activity pack filled up with hours of fun and creativeness for you kids aged 7-12.

It is fun for the whole family working together completing projects like researching your cultural background re-discovering cultural heritage through art and stories as the city of Southampton is a very diverse and multicultural city.
