Mission and Objectives

To create a public memorial sculpture
A permanent, public sculpture in Huddersfield commemorating the Jews and other minorities(1) killed in the Holocaust, and continuing genocides(2).
With a connected programme of information, education and live events, exploring the connections between the Holocaust and the experience of persecuted minorities in the world today, especially those people who seek sanctuary in our community.
Note1: Other Minorities: The Roma and Sinti (Gypsies), the disabled, homosexuals, trade unionists, conscientious objectors, Jehovah’s Witnesses, opponents of the Nazi regime and the destitute.
Note 2: Genocide: The deliberate extermination of a minority. Genocides since World War II have taken place in countries including Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia and Iraq.

Main Projects / Activities

The Story of 6 million+
In 2005, we initiated a project to collect over 6 million buttons to illustrate the industrial scale of the Holocaust and other genocides. The public collection began in West Yorkshire, but word soon spread and many of the buttons were collected regionally, nationally and even internationally. Leeds based artist Antonia Stowe was commissioned to design the installation for Huddersfield Art Gallery. 6 million+ had a huge impact on visitors and toured nationally for the next five years to places including Ripon Cathedral and Brent Cross Shopping Centre in London.
The project has involved thousands of young people, community groups and individuals in the process of collecting buttons and thinking about genocide and discrimination. The installation included a film featuring conversations between Holocaust survivors and asylum seekers and poetry written in response to their experiences.

General Information
Accentuate is a private limited company based in the north east of England, with two full-time members of staff, one part-time administrator, and a number of independent consultants and associates. Sources of funding are primarily the EU-funded programmes, as Accentuate's focus is on trans-national projects, seminars and exchanges. We have an extensive range of partners, both in the UK and across the EU and its candidate countries.
Mission and Objectives

Accentuate is a UK-based organisation focused on supporting businesses, education and training providers, charities and young people in the north east of England. Our aim is to improve employability amongst young people in the region by supporting these organisations to create links, partnerships and projects in the EU. In order to achieve this, we provide work and life experience for young people through placements in other countries, and we support north east-based schools, education and training providers and charities in the development of innovative projects, enabling them to offer a better service to learners and service users.

Main Projects / Activities

Our main projects and activities are associated with EU funded programmes, focusing on the development of young people’s skills and learning, and promoting awareness of cultural diversity in the local community.

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?

We believe that our focus on enabling trans-national mobility for young people can help the UK ALF network to maximise the opportunities offered to gain from such experiences. We believe that our experience and expertise in organising such activities will also be a useful contribution to the UK ALF network.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?

We wish to join the ALF network because we are in sympathy with its aims and objectives, and believe that our activities should strive to make links with the non-EU countries of the Mediterranean basin, and in particular enable the young people of the UK to interact with their peers in that region, in order to extend and develop inter-cultural understanding and co-operation.

General Information
Ahdaf is a registered charity and is run by three co-founding trustees who receive no payment for their work. At present Ahdaf has no employees. The main activity is to provide scholarships for Palestinian students to come to the UK, and to support them through a mentoring programme. The students conduct voluntary projects in their community. The students who are supported by Ahdaf are considered members of the organisation and contribute through their own voluntary projects as well as through involvement in the annual selection process of new students. Students also contribute their opinions about how Ahdaf is run and their views are taken into account when decisions are made. Ahdaf has an investment portfolio and the interest generated from this provides our only income currently. We intend to start a fundraising programme to supplement this.
Mission and Objectives

Mission: Building today for Palestine’s tomorrow
Aims: To empower youth in Palestine to become: community leaders, critical thinkers and active participants in building civil society

How can you contribute to the Network in your country?

Ahdaf is unique: no other organisation that works with youth in Palestine operates in the way Ahdaf does, and its structure ensures that the students are at the heart of its development. Students and alumni are members of Ahdaf and contribute their energy and direction to help us shape what we do. We are keen to share our own experiences and ideas with others, helping us all to develop and grow, and to improve the work that we’re doing.

Why do you want to join the ALF Network?

We hope joining the network will offer us a number of benefits, including the potential to offer our students access to other opportunities to help support their work in Palestine, improving our own networking opportunities, linking us with other organisations working in areas of youth empowerment and community development, and increasing opportunities to learn from others to broaden our knowledge, skills and understanding.

General Information
ALDATERRA Projects is a not-for-profit making organisation set up to promote the dialogue between different cultures and to support critical debate on issues related to migration through the arts and education. It promotes international cultural exchange, intergenerational and intercultural programmes and the use of new media. The organisation supports international artistic collaborations to engage diverse audiences nationally and internationally, and to explore new artistic practises based on cross-fertilisation between different disciplines and art forms.
Mission and Objectives

The Company is a not-for-profit organisation established to:

Promote the dialogue between different cultures and support the critical debate on issues related to migration through arts and education;

Stimulate the exploration of new art forms by fostering interdisciplinary collaborations and international artistic exchange;

Develop activities based on cross-fertilisation between different art forms and disciplines, aesthetic experimentation and technological innovation;

Deliver educational activities and community engagement programmes through the arts and the use of new media;

Engage diverse audiences nationally and internationally and promote social cohesion, intergenerational dialogues and intercultural exchange;

Promote research and development into any aspect of the objectives of the Company and its work and disseminate the results of any such research for the public benefit.

Main Projects / Activities

The organisation is currently developing an educational and outreach programme called "The Living Archeology of the Place" as part of "Streets of...", an international visual arts project which explores the everyday life of seven cities around the world to uncover the traces left in the human body by three migratory journeys - the Indo European migrations, the Transatlantic Slave Trade, and the Silk Road.
“Streets of…” was first conceived by Alda Terracciano in 2004 and aims to be exhibited as a video audio installation in 2012 in London as part of the Cultural Olympiad, in conjunction with other international venues. "Streets of..." also aims to be presented in 2013 as part of the Universal Forum of Cultures in Naples (Italy). “The Living Archeology of the Place” programme is currently developed in collaboration with art galleries, community centers and educational organisations based in the seven cities that are explored in the “Streets of…” project, and will culminate in an exhibition of material recorded, submitted and produced by members of the communities, young people, international artists and the general public during its production.
The aim of the programme is to stimulate professional development and confidence in the participants, wider understanding of issues related to migration, and the creation of stronger links across generations. "The Living Archeology of the Place" exhibition will also increase older people's emotional well-being by giving them a sense of full participation in the creation of contemporary cultural trends. The exhibition and digital media labs created in each city will give an opportunity to the participants to take their ideas forward for new creative outcomes, while facilitating public debates on issues related to migration, arts and cultural diversity in the Europe.
