UCG is Proud To Be…

Black History Month is an opportunity for reflection and celebration. We are all proud of something, whether that is something we’ve done or the person that we are. The theme of Black History Month UK 2021 is ‘Proud To Be,’ which invites Black and Brown individuals, families, and communities to focus on how we are all making history in our own ways.

Take a moment to think about what you are “Proud To Be” and share it with our community. We hope you’ll be inspired by what others have shared! 

 

Creative Competition

While Black History Month is a time to reflect on the experiences of the past and present that are often overlooked in the mainstream culture, it is also a time for celebration. In that spirit, UCG is hosting a Creative Competition and welcoming submissions from students of all ages and course areas. 

The competition will run for the month of October and after all submissions have been collected, a panel of UCG tutors will judge entries and select three winners who will receive a prize! Entries will also be recognised on the UCG website.

  • Any artistic entry is accepted: paintings, drawings, photographs, short stories, poems, etc.
