Hidden Histories, Hidden Historians: Oldham Youth Council exhibition sneak peek
Tuesday 24 October 2017
From mid-November you will have the
marvellous opportunity to reap the benefits of the achievements of our Hidden
Histories, Hidden Historians project. The exhibitions go live at Archives+ from
the 11th November and we are so excited to share them with you.
Oldham Youth Council, one of the project
groups, used the opportunity to explore how Oldham has become so richly
diverse. For a sneak peek at their exhibition, we’ve chosen one of Roshni’s
stories about her ancestors and their journey.
This beautiful photograph of Roshnis’
grandmother is part of the story of her mother’s family’s journey to Oldham
from Gujarat via railway building in British East Africa and then to London.
Industry, craft, fashion, catering, academia and entrepreneurial endeavours
brought the family to Oldham in the 1970s.
Learn about her family’s stories and many
more in Oldham Youth Council’s Hidden Histories, Hidden Historians exhibition
at Archives+ from 11th November 2017 until 31st January 2018 and join us for a special launch event from 3pm-5pm on Saturday 11th November.
