'75 years- our story'
In celebration of the South Asian Heritage Month (July 18 to August 17) we are hosting an exhibition of photographs curated by Halima Malek, Community Producer with Strike A Light. In 2022, the 75th year since Indian partition, Halima gathered stories from Gloucester’s Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities as part of her ’75 years – our stories’ project. You can see the resultant exhibition in the foyer at Gloucestershire Heritage Hub until the beginning of September. An artwork (wooden tryptic) by Aumairah inspired by the project is due to be installed soon. Films capturing some of the stories celebrating the experiences and culture of the Gloucester’s South Asian communities will also be added to the collections at Gloucestershire Archives to ensure they remain available for future generations.
