For every Being the Story ticket sold, sounddelivery donates £5 to the Jay Merriman Mukoro Bursary Fund.
Jay was a gifted filmmaker and broadcaster who died tragically at 43. He was a passionate storyteller and worked on some of the most important current affairs programmes and documentaries on British television over the last 10 years. These include Mixed Britannia and the BAFTA award-winning series History of Modern Britain. Jay’s work serves as an inspiration for many British, Black, Asian, and minority ethnic people working in television.
Jay’s Fund supports a student experiencing financial hardship to take a one-year journalism course at Goldsmiths. As Jay’s friend, Jude Habib, sounddelivery Director, wanted to donate a portion of Being the Story ticket sales to his fund to continue to champion his commitment to storytelling.
