As part of our #70YearsOn campaign, The Grand Trunk Project has commissioned a travelling exhibition, photo gallery and The Postcard Project.
The exhibition maps the history of the Partition, the affected communities, the impact on religious identity and the influence on film and literature. It also includes the experience of South Asian communities establishing themselves in the UK and the effect on minority faiths. Researcher and writer Werisha Husaini (MSc Migration Mobility and Development), was commissioned for this exhibiton which shall be touring over 11 cities in England.
The photo gallery consists of twelve portraits of members of the South Asian diaspora, sharing their story or family memory. These stories were collated by the Grand Trunk Project team and photographer Redhwan Ahmed.
The Postcard Project opens this collective storytelling to everyone, allowing them to share their memory, once placed in the trunk it will travel and form part of an exhibition and allow us to share more unheard stories.
The Grand Trunk Project would like to thank AMAL for their support and allowing British South Asian talent to be showcased.
