About Quilombo

We are a Kingston-based charitable organisation using creative thinking to build community cohesion.

Encouraging different cultures to come together enables us to share and celebrate important lessons.

Partnering with cultural, social and sports organisations, we put on programmes of training, workshops and other events that promote unity and tolerance.

We conduct research to challenge preconceptions around race and stereotyping. Our findings are supported by educational opportunities designed to broaden perspectives.

What Does Quilombo Mean?

Quilombo is a Brazilian term used to describe a settlement of freed slaves. Traditionally, it is a place of shelter for people of all backgrounds to build a harmonious life together.

We chose the name Quilombo to represent our charity because it reflects our mission to create a community of shared values and mutual respect.
