A Permanent Monument to the Windrush Generation.

15 Jul 2021

A monument has been commissioned by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to recognise how the Windrush generation have enriched our nation’s history.The Monument will be a permanent tribute to a generation of arrivals from the Caribbean to this country – from the arrival of MV Empire Windrush in 1948 and in the decades that followed. It is expected to be unveiled on Windrush Day 22 June 2022.

The monument will be placed within Waterloo Station.
The Government department has asked for people views on the four ideas put forward by artists who are of Caribbean descent. The final artist design will be chosen in Spetember by the Windrush Commemoration Committee and the winner will be announced in October 2021 during Black History month.

You can see four short videos showing the artist speaking about their designs and a link to the questionnaire on the government website here It is a government website, so it is not hugely child friendly.

If you were interested in taking part maybe you could watch the videos with you child and then talk through the questions together. The questionnaire closes on 25th August 2021.
