Delivering Shared Heritage: The Mayor's Commission of African and Asian Heritage

Mayor’s Commission on African and Asian Heritage (MCAAH)

    Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


    The Mayor’s Commission on African and Asian Heritage (MCAAH) formally convened from August 2003 to June 2004. Composed of heritage and race equality practitioners, cultural policy-makers and academics, the Commission was established to build on the Mayor’s commitment to promote the heritage and histories of African and Asian communities in the capital.

    The Commission was asked to provide an overall strategy for supporting the preservation of African and Asian history and heritage, as well as increasing its accessibility to all sections of society. Through an intensive inquiry process, the Commission assessed the service provision for London’s African and Asian communities within the mainstream heritage sector and examined the infrastructure needs of these communities’ heritage-focused organisations. It also explored the need for equitable partnerships and set out the fundamentals required for a more inclusive education system
