Black Cultural Archives
The £7 m capital project will create the UK’s first national Black heritage centre. A complete refurbishment of the grade II listed Raleigh Hall will create a new exhibition space, visitor centre, interactive orientation area, library and conservation space at the heart of Brixton. A purpose built new extension will provide integrated archive storage for the collection to BS 5454. The Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects designed project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, London Development Agency and London Borough of Lambeth.
