The Wampanoag Perspectives Conference is themed around acceptance, migration and freedom with links to Nottinghamshire's history.

Keynote speakers at the event will be Paula Peters, spokesperson and activist representing the Wampanoag (Native American) Nation; and Lord John Mann, independent government advisor on anti-Semitism and former Nottinghamshire MP. A choice of breakout sessions led by activists, museums and artists will give guests the opportunity to reflect on the past and look to the future through the lens of our core themes: acceptance, freedom and migration.

The Wampanoag were the native Americans whom Nottinghamshire pilgrims encountered on arrival in America in 1620. The 400th anniversary of the Mayflower's sailing has been an opportunity to explore a more holistic version of the history that has become legend. Challenging the myths of the story has been part of the work of Bassetlaw Museum & Pilgrims Gallery, made possible through relationships with members of the Wampanoag Nation who have shared their perspective so generously. This conference broadens the conversation to include other topics linked to challenging histories and current issues.

This online event is part of the Arts Council England project which saw members of the Wampanoag Nation sharing their culture & history with the area where many pilgrim leaders originated. The visitors built a traditional home which will stand for years in the Bassetlaw Museum grounds; they supported education sessions with 600 local school children; and the guests also shared traditional music and dance in a cultural showcase during their time in Nottinghamshire.

Now learning from the project and other organisations is going online to reach an international audience: thanks to the funding partners: Arts Council England; Bassetlaw District Council; Nottinghamshire County Council.
