To open Hate Crime Awareness Week 2021, we had a successful stall in Newark's Royal Market on Saturday 9th October 2021. It was centrally placed outside Newark Town Hall to raise awareness of how to prevent hate crime and report it if you see it.
Karen Burri Becher, Senior Educator at the National Holocaust Centre and Museum worked on the stall on Saturday morning. She said "It has been a fabulous day on the market square today. Lots of people are stopping to have a chat, and we have been distributing many leaflets and Newark College mugs. The band set up just next to us has not only provided great music, but has drawn crowds in our direction, so really a great day."
The posters from last year's poster competition have also been displayed inside the Buttermarket so that passers-by can see the messages there.
On Thursday 14th October local artist Nadia Ming will be judging this year's poster competition. The new posters will be displayed in the Buttermarket for the next two weeks.
The video competition will also be launched to give participants plenty of time to work on their entries before the closing date in September 2022.
