Jagdish Patel – Walk and exhibition: Asian Activism in Nottingham
Saturday 23 September, 13:00–17:30
WALK: 13:00 (meet at Primary)
Join artist Jagdish Patel and elders from the local community for a walking tour and exhibition. This event celebrates people from the South Asian Diaspora who settled in Nottingham and contributed to challenging everyday racism in the city through different forms of activism. From housing campaigns, to interventions in factories, legal challenges, or through music and culture – although these small acts went largely unacknowledged, they contributed to the multi-cultural Nottingham we know today.
Join us for a walk around Radford and Lenton from 1pm, followed by refreshments and a exhibition of photographs and archive material at Primary.
