UK-China Film Collab has been selected as a community partner to participate in King’s College’s Civic Challenge programme.

What is ‘King’s Civic Challenge’?

Initiated by King’s College London, King’s Civic Challenge brings together teams of students, staff and local charities to co-create solutions to some of the challenges our communities face. Designed in collaboration with the university’s partners in Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster,  King’s Civic Challenge invites local charities to work with the King’s community to develop fresh perspectives on local issues.

It’s one of the ways the university aims to make positive change in its home boroughs, as part of the ambition to become a civic university at the heart of London. Four core Civic Challenge awards align with the mutual priorities King’s identified in partnership with our local boroughs: health and wellbeing, education and attainment, business and enterprise and community resilience. Each community partner will receive £5,000 alongside a package of evaluation and support to carry on their project.

What is UK-China Film Collab’s proposed project?

The Chinese community in the UK is composed by different groups, generations and identities; inevitably, sometimes conflicts appear due to different cultural and political beliefs, as we have learnt from a recent incident took place in London Chinatown. How can a collaborative film project encourage more dialogues and constructive debates among different groups within the Chinese community in the UK? We hope that by working with King’s Civic Challenge programme will help us to establish a more productive and positive space for conversation and resilience.
