We are a tiny charity with no paid staff. We often need volunteers — particularly at the events we organise. There are some bigger tasks we need help with (especially fundraising and marketing). We have a Volunteer policy which includes paying for your expenses. If you would like to talk to us about volunteering, please contact us and we will arrange to meet with you.

Join our Newsletter list

We have a Newsletter that is produced about nine times a year. If you’d like to be added to the Mailing List, please contact us by email.

If you watched our new film of Yinka Shonibare CBE, RA talking about David Oluwale and the Hibiscus Rising sculpture Yinka is making, you'll have noticed the amazing graphics. With permission, part of the graphic has been used in this new fine art print and postcard. (The film is on our You Tube channel.)
The art print is A3 size (30 x 42cm) and the postcard utilises the same image in standard postcard size. Our illustration shows the print in a standard, off•the•shelf frame, which required a slight trim from the original size. The postcard has the same image and design.

New art-print poster: £10 plus P+P. {Frame not supplied.)
Postcard: £10 for 20 cards plus P&P.

Keep Up To Date with #RememberOluwale

RememberOluwale uses Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to provide information published today that relates to the issues that marked David’s life: mental ill-health, homelessness, racism, destitution and police malpractice. David was a British citizen who migrated here, so we also provide information relating to those seeking refuge in the UK. We give credit to the city of Leeds for the progress it has made since David’s days. But there is so much more to be done. Our aim, always, is to help the city of Leeds become more inclusive, more just, more hospitable and more equal. Please go to our social media to find out about current campaigns.
