Jagdish Patel – Walk and exhibition: Asian Activism in Nottingham
Saturday 23 September, 13:00–17:30
WALK: 13:00 (meet at Primary)
Artist Jagdish Patel and elders from the local community took part in a walking tour and exhibition. This event celebrated 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.
The event comprised of a guided walk around Radford and Lenton from, followed by refreshments and a exhibition of photographs and archive material at Primary.
