Description: As part of the celebration to mark BHM the Assembly is proud to host an exhibition delivered by the Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team Wales (EYST Wales) and Cardiff University. Wales has a diverse and rich past and is a multicultural country host to numerous races. With 4.7% of the population saying in 2018 that they are from a non - white background we are proud to take part in BHM and recognise, celebrate and value our BAME communities and the contribution they have made to the development of Wales. ‘Young, Migrant & Welsh’ curated by the Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team Wales (EYST Wales) aims to capture the experiences of young people from migratory backgrounds growing up in Wales. It explores concepts of belonging, identity and whether ‘Welshness’ is an inclusive concept. It also aims to break down misconceptions of the term ‘migrant’ and to reclaim it in a more positive context than current media discourses. #ItooamCardiff, is a student-led initiative highlighting the faces and voices of BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) students at Cardiff University. The exhibition was launched in 2016 and has been touring since as a way to give BAME communities a voice, raise awareness and prompt discussion.
Open to the public: Attendance at the event is by invitation only however the Senedd and the Pierhead will remain accessible to the public during our normal opening hours.
