Primary artist resident Jagdish Patel and artist Farida Makki have been working in collaboration with local Muslim families with connections to the Second World War. They have used personal memory and archival material to pose questions about the process of war memorialisation, empire and its interconnections to our present-day identities.

When The Snow Melts is part of Himmah’s Heritage Lottery Funded, Muslim Memory Project. ‘When The Snow Melts: The World Wars, Empire and Muslim Soldiers’ opened on 26 September at New Art Exchange and runs until 31 December 2019.
