Number Games: Does race have a place in the Big Society?
13 April 2011
Number Games, Runnymede's first documentary, explores how Big Society ideas have already played out in the US.
The 25-minute film, which is the brainchild of Runnymede and independent filmmakers Feedback Films, explores how we can ensure that the Big Society is also a racially just one.
We know that cuts to public sector services and jobs will impact particularly heavily on ethnic minority people. Meanwhile the organisations that fight for racial equality in our society are to lose financial support, leading to doors being permanently shut. So we ask: Can the Big Society be a racially just one?
We believe that there are opportunities for us to make sure that it is. But to keep race equality on the agenda will mean finding new ways to approach the same problems and, perhaps, learning from societies elsewhere.
