Journey from home

December 11, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Talk

The ‘Journey from Home’ project is a community heritage project that explores the experiences, feelings and stories of South Asian soldiers during the First World War. Working with young people and communities in London and Birmingham, it tells the stories that are not often told about those who served. A key theme for the project is ‘sacrifice and remembrance’, and invited speakers will discuss the importance of this theme.

Speakers will include Amandeep Madra OBE (United Kingdom Punjabi Heritage Association), Paula Kitching (historian and author), Amit and Naroop (Turbans and Tales) and Kiran Sahota (Believe in Me).

Book ahead.
