Over a period of two years Black Country Visual Arts has brought together an exciting collection of 2000 photographs exploring Punjabi migration to Wolverhampton from the 1960s to the 1980s. The project won them ‘Best New Group’ at the recent 2017 Community Archive & Heritage Awards.
Between 13 January and 18 March 2018, these photographs will form the basis of an exhibition at Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
In this inaugural exhibition, visitors will get a rare glimpse of 30 years of life captured by Punjabi families across the city from their own photographs and family albums. Also on display will be a series of present day portraits from within the Punjabi community, and visitors can even take a family selfie in our mock ‘70s photographic studio!
