British | Nigerian “I would identify myself as mixed-race. My dad is White British, my mum is Nigerian/British. I grew up with my mum in a predominantly White area of England. I feel like I’ve known I was mixed-race all my life. It was definitely made clear to me as a very young child when I never saw another person of African descent in nursery or primary school. During school I would latch onto anyone who was also outcast or different. There are definitely bias attitudes towards mixed-race people, from teachers not wanting to do my hair for school plays or yelling at me about hair extensions in gym class. And from the Black community that refuses to accept me since I have White skin and no African culture. It’s the middle ground where you get ignorance and rejection from both sides. My only other Nigerian friend in school took it upon herself to explain to me about my African culture. I owe her everything as that alone kept me from being lost in the sea of “I don’t even know who I am” that filled my mind. When I was younger I tried really hard to be White. My mum and I don’t share a surname either, so every teacher parent meeting day would be stressful as people wouldn’t realise we were related at first. And I always had to explain my mum’s Nigerian surname pronunciation, but they would just be confused because I do not look African so ‘why would I know that?’. If I had the chance to be reincarnated I wouldn’t mind what background I’d be born into, but I do acknowledge the privilege I’ve had as a white passing teenager in these times, even though it’s felt very isolating trying to be someone that I am not. There are so many mixed-race people now, that number will only continue to grow. I’d never seen another person’s Afro in real life till I was a teenager running around London alone. Diversity in media is everything, just knowing others are out there like you would have changed my childhood so I really hope in the future we can get to a place where every possible culture is visible in popular media and no one feels gatekept by another culture.” #mixedracefaces at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

Jamaican | Polish/Swiss-German/English “I identify myself as a mixed-race. My dad is from Jamaica and moved to London when he was around 6. My mum is White, born in London but of mixed-European heritage. She’s half-Polish, ¼ Swiss-German and ¼ English. They met in the mid-1970s, my mum was 14 and my dad was 16. On the night she met my dad, she was at an under-18s soul and funk ‘disco’. They ended up staying together for over 30 years. They’re happily divorced now and remain good friends. I do think cultural differences played a significant part in the slow demise of their relationship, especially once children came into the picture. They had very different ideas on how we should be brought up, which caused endless arguments over the years. Before I realised colour was anything more than a Dulux chart, it used to confuse me when my dad would call himself Black. When I drew him in my pictures, I would reach for my brown Crayola and capture his complexion. I remember a conversation in the car with my dad, I must’ve been around 5 and my little brother Stefan was about 3. Stefan had gotten the idea into his head that he was White, like mum. My dad explained why he wasn’t, ‘I'm Black and your mum is White. You're a bit of me and your mum, so you're mixed-race. But just know that the world will always see you as Black. You might have it a bit easier, but you'll still have to work twice as hard to get half as far as them.’ I think there are a lot of assumptions. For example, when most people in the UK think of what constitutes mixed-race, they assume a Black/ White combo. That needs to change, which is why the Mixed Race Faces campaign is so important. Straddling races and cultures means that, while you might never 100% ‘belong’ to either, you get an interesting and unique insight into both. I’m at peace with that fact. If I was to be born again I would want to come back exactly the same. It was only relatively recently (late 90s/ early 2000s) that mixed ethnicities were added as an option on census forms in the UK, which is crazy! Mixed-race relationships are becoming increasingly common, so the lines will continue to blur.” #mixedracefaces #mixed at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

Northern Ireland | Sierra Leone "Identifying myself has evolved over time. I used to say I was black, but now I would say mixed race as it feels more accurate and authentic. I was born in Northern Ireland. After university I moved to the Netherlands in 1988. I’ve now been here for 30 years! I’m married to a Dutchman and have one grown-up daughter. My mother was from Northern Ireland. She lived in the same area in Belfast for her entire life. My father was from Kenema, a town in Sierra Leone. My father relocated to Northern Ireland in the early 1960s to study law at Queen’s University. My mother lived near the student area and met him at a party. At the age of five I knew I was mixed race. My father had already left Northern Ireland, never to return. But he did leave his record collection, which included both African highlife and classical music. I remember listening to his records one afternoon – highlife and Tchaikovsky – loving both types of music but suddenly feeling they were quite different and somehow incompatible. As if I had to choose between them. Unfortunately, the other kids in the neighborhood also made it clear to me that I was ‘different’ from an early age. There was a lot of bullying. In the Netherlands, schools with a lot of children from ethnic minorities are called black schools even if the pupils are from Turkey or Morocco. But I’m not sure about bias or stereotypes aimed specifically at mixed race people, apart from a sort of positive bias. The positive aspects of being mixed race are that I feel connected to a lot of different people and I love living in a diverse city like Amsterdam. I also think that being mixed race informs my work in a positive way as it makes me more culturally sensitive." #mixedracefaces at Vigics

Jamaican | English "My mum is North Eastern English (Middlesbrough) and my dad is Jamaican. I was born in South West London and they met on Kings Road (Chelsea) at a gig. I identify myself as Brown and as mixed race to the world. I am comfortable with being referred to as mixed race. I have dated just about every cultural background. I work in a team where we speak openly about race. These are some of the most culturally conscious professionals I have come across, I still discover blind spots about the experience of mixed race. This isn’t because of their openness, there just doesn’t seem to be a focus on this. Race is a complicated issue, and I think if you throw in a white and black mix it can blow people’s minds and leave much to assumptions if not explored delicately and with interest. A profound experience in my life was my first crush that rejected me on the basis of my race. I feel that being mixed and of itself is a profound experience. I think it requires confidence and a safe community to start to voice some of the feelings and experiences that has been a part of my identity. My background has had a profound effect on my personal relationships, yes absolutely! From potential discomfort from an ex traditional white mother in law, to being defined as 'black' one day by a black boyfriend l, to then being described 'as not that black' by a another. With my family relationships I have been super lucky as we are all so mixed, accepting and open minded. I love my family dearly – although there have been times in my growing up that I felt lonely and couldn’t explore my experience with adults who loved me, but in no way reflected my experience as a mixed race woman. Maybe it will be easier these days as more brown and mixed race individuals increasingly have a voice in the media, I hope so! If I were to be born again, the idealistic answer would be - it shouldn’t matter. I would never choose to be anything other than what I am. I would like to be born in a time as I am, but where we have come much further as a society as far as conversations around culture and acceptance." #mixedracefaces at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

Korean | Dutch / Portuguese “At school I never realised that I was that different from everyone else and that my mum being Korean was the reason that kids at school would make fun of me. I didn’t really enjoy it. At the same time, on a Saturday, mum would send me to Korean school and I hated that as well. I was different from all the Korean kids who were there. I didn’t speak any Korean. I found it really hard to have any conversations with the kids at break times. It was quite difficult. I felt very alone a lot of the time. To me it was normal to have a Korean mum and I never questioned it. As a child I think I identified as a white kid being made to do Korean things and I almost kind of resented it a lot of the time. Now, I actually feel really proud to have all these different mixes. I feel that the western world looks at the East Asian world with a lack of understanding. There is a lot of stigma and negative views. I kind of felt a bit like that about Korean people too because I have been raised in England. It wasn’t really until I went to Korea maybe six or 7 years ago and I was like wow this place is actually really cool! In the world cup when Korea beat Germany I felt really really proud. I am one of those people and we can play football well. I just wish it was like that more of the time. I would come back as the mix that I am, maybe with slightly different experiences. The older I have gotten, the more proud I am of my mix. When I tell people, they are always really shocked - how did those different cultures get to meet and be together and produce another person? I enjoy having those different parts of me that not many other people have. When I am able to eat Korean food and know what I am eating or be able to read Korean words and know what they mean, that is what is different about me.” #mixedracefaces at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

Guyanese | English “My dad was born in Croydon and my mum was born in Guyana on the East bank. My mum came to the UK when she was 8 years old with her large family, there were in total 10 siblings. My grandad came over as a tailor and worked in London, my grandma came later with 1 suitcase and 8 children. The youngest was a baby and the rest were a year apart. They then moved to Brixton where they had another 2 children. My mum is Indian Guyanese, they originated from an area once called Madras in India and then moved over to Guyana to work on the plantations, similar to slave trading. The Guyana people gave the Indians more responsibility and an acre of land per family, that’s why the majority of people in Guyana are mixed Indian. My mum loves her Indian heritage, from the music she listens to and food she eats. I hadn’t really thought about my heritage as my friends were mixed race until I was about 8 years old. I had a few friends who were also mixed heritage and we all realised we were mixed at the same time. Only recently I have begun to want to embrace my culture and really learn more about both sides of my heritage. I recently visited Guyana and was able to experience the relaxed culture. The only time I ever experience negativity is during Carnival, people question why I’m holding a Guyana flag and some have actually been angry enough to not want to sell me one. I think it is strange and ignorance about the country’s history. I like to keep people guessing my heritage, there’s only ever one person who has ever guessed my mixed heritage. I think it’s a niche, not many people know where Guyana is. When I meet someone from Guyana I feel like there is an instant connection. In terms of social groups, I have never really picked based on race. Most of my friends are white, I wish I had more Caribbean friends as I would like to experience more of that side of my culture. My ex-boyfriend is mixed Syrian, Iraqi and Kurdish. We would joke if we ever had kids how we would have to pull out a map to explain their heritage.” #mixedracefaces at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

British | Filipino "My parents met in the Philippines He decided to visit the Philippines on a holiday while my half-brother was staying at his place in the UK. It was a strange choice in the 80s as it wasn’t a usual touristic destination but a friend of his had recommended it, so he decided to go. My parents met on the first night of his trip, but he had really bad jetlag, so he slept for 14 hours and missed seeing my mum for a few weeks. It was by chance that they met again and got to spend a lot of time together. When his trip had ended he wrote a letter to her saying he wanted to continue the relationship and for her possibly to come to the UK. My mum flew to England and arrived in December ’88, she had never seen snow and didn’t know where the UK actually was. After she arrived they never looked back. I grew up in Manchester, only since University have I ever really thought about my mixed heritage. In my primary school I didn’t really feel I was different to anyone else. I think this may be because people assume my fair skin means I am white. It’s only when I explain my mix that people actually notice. Back in 2016 when I was working at the RFC one of the national papers reviewed the show. It’s predominantly a black cast but they focused on me and identified me as white, they had essentially deleted a whole part of my identity. It really hit home that I have to fight to be seen as a mixed-race person. I have a niece and a god-daughter who are also mixed, I want them to know when I’m doing things in the public eye I want them to see they their heritage is being represented. Especially in Manchester there were not many mixed race or Filipino people. I do love meeting mixed-race people, I think especially in the theatre and acting industry we do need to work harder to be recognised. I’m usually cast as White-English which can be quite frustrating. I think we need to recognise that based on the history of our country we will of course have a melting pot of people. It’s something to celebrate and look at as a positive. Racial identity will develop over time based on people’s continuously mixing." #mixedracefaces at Copeland Park & Bussey Building

English | Chinese “My dad is Chinese, was born in Malaysia, he moved to England when he was 18. My mum was born in Chester. I grew up in Croydon with both my mum & my dad. My parents met during their training as Psychiatric Nurses when they were 18 and we grew up in Colesden in an old Victorian Cottage, which was paid for by the hospital. Chipstead Valley road was a road of immigrants who came over in the 70s to train as Psychiatric nurses, so we had Scottish, Irish, Filipino, Sri Lankan and Mauritian families. I grew up in a very Chinese environment; my dad was a great cook and would mainly cook Chinese food. My mum loved it and preferred it to English food. We watched Chinese films and learned karate, really were in touch with our Chinese culture. My identity changes all of the time I normally identify myself as British Chinese or Eurasian. Because of the culture that we live in I think I address more of the Chinese side over my English side. In Secondary school I became more interested in my racial make-up. My siblings and I were really proud of being Malaysian; we had this catch phrase “well in Malaysia” because we would always contrast things in the UK to what would happen in Malaysia. This is when I became interested in my roots. In The BRIT School I would begin researching my heritage and would read lots of books about the Cultural Revolution. When I graduated from the The BRIT School I then went on to SOAS and completed a degree on modern classical Chinese, which was a 4-year degree and hard work but really helped me to discover my roots. This was something that I noticed a lot of Eurasian students in my class were also doing. I was able to understand how the Chinese moved to Malaysia and then to the UK. The Chinese Diasporic communities are something that really fascinates me it informs my writing. I wrote a play called ‘Jamaican boy’ which is about a Chinese Jamaican boy who falls in love with black Jamaican girl in 1960s. It then flips to modern day Croydon where a Eurasian boy who doesn’t know his Chinese father but only has a connection with his Irish mother. He then meets a Jamaican lady who knows more about Chinese culture than he does " at Copeland Park & Bussey Building
