Welcome to South West Dorset Multicultural Network

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network (SWDMCN) aims to end the isolation felt by people from Black and minority ethnic (BME) backgrounds in South West Dorset.

The South West Dorset Multicultural Network will do this by promoting positive relationships between people from a diverse range of cultural, religious and ethnic backgrounds, living or working in South West Dorset, and taking steps to proactively address any incidents of racism or harassment reported to us.

Dorchester Town Council in partnership with the South-West Dorset Multicultural Network, have been working with the local community, Kushti Bok, Dorset Council, and several Dorset schools to create a short film to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) which takes place every year on the 27 January, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

The film will be under 30 minutes long, and they invite you to watch it, either on the day or at a time that suits you.

Although the film includes contributions from Years 5 and 6, as well as from older students it is at your discretion whether the content is suitable for younger children. 

You are also invited to prepare before watching, to light a candle during the final part of the film.

In addition, the HMD Trust will be live streaming The UK Ceremony for Holocaust Memorial Day 2022 online on Thursday 27 January at 7pm.
