Apna Heritage Archive

Anand Chhabra has curated an exhibition from the 2000 image archive dating from 1960 to 1989.  These rarely seen photographs give an insight into family life, customs and integration into life in the UK.

For Blast! Anand will include new photographs collected from the Punjabi community in West Bromwich. Please note this exhibition is open for general viewing on the 7th June.

This commission is part of the Forge Artist Open Call Programme which invited 12 West Midlands artists and/or curators to make new bodies of work for the Blast! Festival and take part in a mentorship programme.
