The project is a 3-part project: Part 1 which has concluded was not open to the public as it was a workshop for facilitators who would present at the symposium. Part 2 is the Symposium itself this Black History Month which will feature professionals in various fields presenting on topics relevant to the needs of the migrant community in NI. These topics include Brexit and the impact on migrant rights ; economic empowerment (employability and entrepreneurship); social media, community cohesion; mental health; physical health; and a keynote Black History Month speaker. Part 3 will be a podcast series later in the year inspired by issues coming out of the symposium and curated to include attendees speakers from the symposium as podcast guests. The podcast series will serve to extend conversations which began at the symposium to a wider audience.
