Every month we feature one of our members and ask them what their organisation is about and what they’ve been up to. This month we caught up with Lisa Mok, Assistant Director of Wai Yin Society.

Wai Yin Society was founded in 1988 by a group of Chinese women in Greater Manchester who wanted to support women who suffered domestic violence and breakdowns in family life. Over the years the society’s programmes have expanded to meet the demands of Black and minority ethnic (BME) community groups in Manchester.  This year, Wai Yin Chinese Women’s Society changed its name to the Wai Yin Society

How important is the BAME vote to arts organisations?

By Ngoma Bishop, Voluntary Chief Officer the Black & Ethnic Minority Arts Network (BEMA)

In light of the impending General Elections in 2015 we see how extremely important our political vote will be to ensure the continuation and stability of our work. The Black and Ethnic Minority Arts Network (BEMA), also known as ‘the arts in harmony network’ is an informal alliance of individual artists, arts organisations, promoters, producers and others with an interest in improving availability of quality art to the public and of developing cultural activity as a means of promoting tolerance, equality and education.

Voice4Change are working with London Voluntary Service Council (LVSC) and other partners to put on two half day events looking at collaboration in the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and Mi grant and Refugee Community sectors.
