We’re delighted to be hosting a touring exhibition which tells the inspiring and often moving stories of some South Gloucestershire residents of Indian heritage.

The exhibition is a blend of images and stories, filmed interviews and objects on loan from the interviewees.

The stories have some common themes: family history, travel, work, education and family life.  The filmed interviews relate quite different experiences but they all explore questions of identity and belonging.

The exhibition is the result of an Arts Council-funded collaborative project, led by South Gloucestershire Council, to which all the museums in South Gloucestershire contributed.  We pay tribute to the individual interviewees who were so generous with their time, and open and honest in relating their thoughts and experiences.  We greatly enjoyed taking part in this project and have learned a great deal as a result.

Do come along and enjoy this richly colourful exhibition.
